La Yedra.

Ottava rhima.

Dizen que Bacco di˛ Ó el Cisso infante
La siempre verde yedra por corona.[1]
De donde con guirnalda semejante
Se adorna el morador d’el Helicona.[2] á[M]
Es verde por de fuera su semblante,
Y en lo demas la amarillez la abona,[3]
Como a’l que en los estudios se enveješe,
De do siempre su fama reverdeše.

[Marginalia - link to text]El poeta.
