Imparilit.

Comme ung faulcon hault volle, l’air passant,
Cane, Oye, & Gay par terre vont paissant,
Ainsi Pindar, en ses dictz les cieulx passe.
Bacchylides escript en forme basse.[1]

Pindar le plus excellent des neuf Graecz Po-
tes Lyricz, escript en style tres haultain Bacchi
lydes
(aultrement doulx Pote) escript en bas,
& humble style. Par lesquelz est monstre im
parilite de personnes, en mesme estat. par simi
litude des oyseaulx hault volans, ou bas allans.

Notes:

1. The first two lines are based on Pindar, Nemean Odes, 3.139-144, where Pindar seems to be obliquely disparaging the style and content of Bacchylides, another poet resident, like himself, at the court of Hiero of Syracuse in the early fifth century BC. See Erasmus, Adagia, 820 (Aquila in nubibus); 1988 (Humi serpere).

    La desigualdad.

    TERCETOS.

    Como sublime buelo se levanta
    El halcon, y en la tierra se apacienta
    El anade, y el anser, con el grajo
    Ansi con verso Pindaro se asienta
    En el supremo ielo, y solo canta
    Bacchilides un son muy rudo y bajo.[1]
