Les prudents.

VIII.

Janus au double front, qui ce qui est arriere
Connois, & l’advenir, vois devant & derriere,
Pourquoy as-tu tant d’yeux, pourquoy plus d’un visage?
Pour figurer au vray l’homme prudent & sage.

Commentaires.

La prudence est necessaire Ó tous, mais principa-
lement aux Princes & aux Magistrats, qui se peu-
vent dire prudents, s’ils se representent les choses pas-
ees, & s’ils prevoyent celles qui sont Ó venir.

    El provecho d'el da˝o ageno.

    Ottava rhima.

    Estando en el hervor de la pelea
    Un bravo puerco, y un leon muy fiero
    Y mientras este y aquel venšer desea
    Como es de corašon diestro y gerrero,
    El beuytre comedor de alto lo ojea
    De aquel ageno mal muy plašentero.
    Sabiendo que ha de ser para el la presa
    De qualquier dellos que llevare empresa.
