La piedad de los hijos para con
los padres.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Dezia Eneas, quando por consejo
De Hector con su padre hizo desvio,
Quan poca gloria os es vencer à un viejo
Tanta es librar a’l padre el hijo pio.[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.163, a much translated epigram. It refers to the celebrated incident of Aeneas’ rescue of his old father at the sack of Troy, carrying him on his shoulders through the occupied and burning city. See Vergil, Aeneid 2.634ff.

Amour de ses enfans.

Apostrophe.

Le Ramier faict son nid avant le ver,
Et ses oeufz couve au plus fort de l’hyver:
Pour ses petitz sa plume arrache, & nu
Il meurt de froid, quand l’hyver est venu.[1]
Progné, Medée, honte point ne te mord?
Veu qu’un oyseau pour les siens reçoit mort?[2]

La Palumbe qui se despoille, & meurt de froid pour
couvrir & eschaufer ses petiz venuz en hyver: donne
exemple de piteuse mere à toutes femmes: & faict honte à
celles qui laissent perir leurs enfans, par faulte de cure,
ou les tuent, comme feit Progné & Medée.

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.95.

2.  Both Medea and Procne killed their own children. They are the legendary infamous child-killers. See [A58a064] n. for Procne, [A58a051] n. for Medea.
