Bonte des enfans envers leurs Peres, ou Meres.

Prosopopoeie.

Quand Eneas portoit hors de peril
Son pere, Aulx Grecs pardonnez. (disoit il)
Gloire n’aurez ung vieil Ó mort livrÚ.
Grand gloire auray mon pere delivrÚ.[1]

A ung filz est grand honneur de rendre ou sauver
la vie, Ó celuy duquel il tient la vie apres Dieu, (qui
est son Pere) Qui est le meilleur, & plus louable acte
que jamais feit Eneas.

Notes:

1. áThis is based on Anthologia graeca 9.163, a much translated epigram. It refers to the celebrated incident of Aeneas’ rescue of his old father at the sack of Troy, carrying him on his shoulders through the occupied and burning city. See Vergil, Aeneid 2.634ff.

Que la bienaventuranša d’esta vida no
dura mas de un momento.

Ottava rhima.

Creši˛ una calabaza Ó tanta altura,
Que se enšim˛ Ó la cumbre de un gran pino
Y de ver su verdor, tan gran locura
Y vanagloria Ó su pensar la vino
Que pens˛ ser la principal criatura.
Mas esta gloria no serÓ contino
(Dixola el pino) que vernà el invierno
Que seque tu verdor caduco y tierno.
