In aulicos.

On Courtiers


Vana Palatinos quos educat[1] aula clientes,
Dicitur auratis nectere compedibus.

The court, so full of vanities, supports the palace entourage, but binds them with fetters of gold, it is said.

Wider die Hoffleut.


Ein Hoffman der sunst hat keyn lon,
Dan jaerlich klayd, und vollen bauch,
Und dient doch stet auff gueten won,
Und hoffnung, woelchs doch als ein rauch
Nach aller hoff gemaynem brauch,
Ist gleich als wan er leg in gold
Gefangen, und wer so ein gauch,
Das er drumb het sein gfengknus hold.


1. áTextual variant: ‘ducat’.
