De guerre Paix.

Apodeixe.

Voy, Que le heaulme en guerre souvent mis
Tant de fois tinct du sang des ennemis.
En temps de Paix sert de rusche, la mousche
Contenant cire, & miel doulx la bouche.

Car aultrement, on ne peut paix acquerre.[1]

Une mesme chose peut avoir deux usa-
ges contraires, comme l’espe porte paix
par craincte & Justice: & porte guerre
par injure, & audace. Pource guerre est
necessaire pour avoir paix. Ce que demon-
stre ung heaulme, en temps de guerre ser
vant aulx armes: en temps de paix aux a-
veilles, miel, & cire.

Que las vezes caen los que alto
contemplan.

Ottava rhima.

Mientras los tordos con la liga engaa
Y las alondras con sottil pihuela,
Y mientras tira y piensa con la caa
Heryr la grulla que por alto buela,
Pis la sierpe que con la sed daa [M]
De lo que el caador no se reela,
Mas muere como aquel que en alto mira
Y del ercano mal no se retira.[1]

[Marginalia - link to text]Dypsas.
