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 ą 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.

Che conviensi, che della donna la bontą & non la bellezza sia divulgata.

It is fitting that the goodness and not the beauty of the woman should be made known.


Venere io son da le mirabil mani
Del dotto Fidia d’un bel marmo finto,
In me vedete atti gentili e humani,
Ch’esser dč Donna a gentilezza accinta.
Fo supra una Testudine dimora,
Perche stia in casa, e sia tacita ogn’hora.
