Krafft der Lieb.

LXXIII.

Der klain Cupido einen plitz
Mit seinem pfeyl und fewr zerspalt:
Soelchs weyst, das Lieb hat so gro▀ hitz,
Das im wider stat kain gewalt:
Es sey ein mensch jung oder alt,
So im der knab ungnedig ist,
Bethort und nart in gar bald,
Und darfur hilfft kain macht, noch list.

Que emos de yr por donde Dios nos llama.

Ottava rhima.

Adonde occurren de una sola senda
Muchos caminos, una imagen puesta
D’el dios Mercurio estÓ,[1] para que entienda
Qualquier qual es la via mas honesta.
A aqueste dios de flores una prenda
Tu caminante cuelga, y mira que esta
Dubdosa via enga˝a nuestro tino
Si Dios no nos empone en el camino.

Notes:

1. áMercury was, among his many other functions, the god of travellers.
