Contra los aduladores.

Endecasyllabos con Dimetros cataletticos.

Està el Camaleon la boca abierta
Y de ayre se mantiene,[1]
Y en todos los colores se transforma
Sino es en blanco y rojo.[2]
Ansi en el popular favor se cria
El adulador triste
Todas las condiciones ymitando
Si no es la pura y casta.

Notes:

1.  This creature was supposed to feed only on air, keeping its mouth wide open to suck it in. See Pliny, Natural History 8.51.122. For the chameleon cf. Erasmus, Parabolae pp.144, 241, 252.

2.  ‘Sino es en blanco y rojo’. See Pliny, ib.

El rico necio.

QUARTEL DE SONETO.

Nadando va sobre el vellon dorado
Phrixo, y llevarse dexa de un carnero,[1]
Qual haze el rico que como grosero
A su muger ò siervo es subjetado.

Notes:

1.  For the story of Phrixus and the Golden Fleece see Ovid, Fasti 3.851ff.
