Les plus petitz sont aussi à craindre.

L’escharbot faict guerre à L’aigle, & l’assault:
Et moindre en force, en finesse plus vault:
Car dens la plume abscons de L’aigle mis,
Porter se faict au nid des ennemis,
Puys rompt les oeufz: gardant faons de croistre:
Ainsi s’en va, vengé se voyant estre.[1]

Mortelle Inimitie naturelle est entre L’aigle tresnoble
oyseau: & l’Escharbot tresvile, & orde beste, qui pour ven-
ger le despris de L’aigle, se cache en ses plumes, & porté
au nid, casse les oeufz, & empesche generation, & multi-
plication des Aigles. Par laquelle nature, on cognoit estre
vray ce qu’on dict. il n’est nul petit ennemy.

Que los pequeños tambien se han de temer.

Ottava rhima.

Guerra el Escarabajo mantenia
Con l’aguila mayor en fortaleza,
Mas con consejo la fuerça vençia
D’ella que en poco tuvo su nobleza.
Entre las plumas d’ella se escondia
Hasta subir a’l nido, y con destreza
Quebrandole los huevos, satisfecho
Quedava de aquel mal que le avia echo.[1]
