Imparilité.

Comme ung faulcon hault volle, l’air passant,
Cane, Oye, & Gay par terre vont paissant,
Ainsi Pindar, en ses dictz les cieulx passe.
Bacchylides escript en forme basse.[1]

Pindar le plus excellent des neuf Graecz Poë-
tes Lyricz, escript en style tres haultain Bacchi
lydes
(aultrement doulx Poëte) escript en bas,
& humble style. Par lesquelz est monstrée im
parilite de personnes, en mesme estat. par simi
litude des oyseaulx hault volans, ou bas allans.

Notes:

1.  The first two lines are based on Pindar, Nemean Odes, 3.139-144, where Pindar seems to be obliquely disparaging the style and content of Bacchylides, another poet resident, like himself, at the court of Hiero of Syracuse in the early fifth century BC. See Erasmus, Adagia, 820 (Aquila in nubibus); 1988 (Humi serpere).

    Contra los maldizientes.

    Ottava rhima.

    Osan echar en mi (como en terreno
    De neçios) los maestros, orinales
    Sucios, berdugos, la hidiondez d’el fiero
    Y suçio pecho, y dezir dos mill [=mil] males.
    Mas que hare? No quiero por entero
    Pagarlos, porque son sin duda quales
    Las moscas que de donde las avientan,
    En mayor multitud alli se asientan.[1]

    Notes:

    1.  ‘Las moscas’. See Erasmus, Adagia, 2660 (Muscas depellere): driving flies away is a waste of effort as they simply return.
