In quegli, che desimparano cị che sapevano.

Regarding those who forget what they knew.


Chi dopo alcun sudor, oblia le cose
Imparate da lui, simile è a punto
A la capra, che’l, munto latte al fine
Qual chi de l’util suo talhor s’oblia,
Dando de calci, spande, e getta via.

In desciscentes.

On those who turn traitor

Qụd fine egregios turpi maculaveris orsus,
In noxamque tuum verteris officium,
Fecisti, quod capra, sui mulctaria [=mulctraria] lactis
Cum ferit, & proprias calce profundit opes.[1]

Because you have spoilt your fine beginnings with a shameful end and turned your service into harm, you have done what the she-goat does when she kicks the bucket that holds her milk and with her hoof squanders her own riches.

Notes:

1.  See Erasmus, Adagia, 920 (Capra Syria), where the goat - of Syros, in the Aegean, not Scyros - is wild.
