PAIX.

Beste portant tours de bois, dent d’ivoire,
AccoustumÚe en guerre avoir victoire,
Est maintenant au collier L’elephant.
Et de Cesar traict le char triumphant,
Concorde es gens cognoist mesme la beste,
Et de la paix (armes laissant) faict feste.[1]

Cesar en son triumphe monta au Capitol avec qua-
rante Elephans portans chascun six hommes, avec
flambeaux ardens, & odorans, en signe de Paix acqui-
se par guerre. Car l’Elephant, est (ou ha estÚ)
Beste guerroyable, par sa force, & adresse: & beste triumpha
le, & pacificque pour sa docile humanitÚ.

El Amor de la virtud.

Dialogo. Lettor. Amor.

SONETO.

L. Do estÓ tu flecha y arco di Cupido,
Con que solias clavar el tierno pecho?
Do estan tus alas, y tu fuego hecho
Para abrasar qualquier hombre našido?
Link to an image of this pageá Link to an image of this page á[G8r p111] Estas coronas tres do te an venido,
Y esotra en la cabeza? A. No ha derecho
En mi la Venus, Ó quien yo desecho,
Lettor, que no soy de ella conševido.
Yo soy aquel Amor de virtud santto
Que las almas enšiendo, y las mantengo,
Y Ó contemplar en alto las levanto.
De virtud las coronas son que tengo,
Y la de la prudenšia (por ser tanto
Su honor) en la cabeza la sostengo.[1]
