La paz.

Ottava rhima.

El elephante que vençer solia
Las guerras con las torres guarneçidas
De gente que en batallas el traia,
Sometiò a’l jugo sus fuerças rendidas
Y lleva armas d'el Cęsar à la pia  [M]
Yglesia, y da de paz nuevas complidas,
Por dar nos à entender como aun los brutos
Ven de la paz seguirse grandes frutos.[1]

[Marginalia - link to text]Julio Cesar.

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.285, which refers to an occasion under the Emperor Tiberius when the statue of the Deified Augustus was for the first time borne in procession in a chariot drawn by elephants.

De guerre Paix.

APODEIXE.

Voy, Que le heaulme en guerre souvent mis
Tant de fois tinct du sang des ennemis:
En temps de Paix sert de rusche, à la mousche
Contenant cire: & miel doulx à la bouche.
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [O4v p216]Armes soient loing: Mais permise soit guerre,
Car aultrement, on ne peut paix acquerre.[1]

Une mesme chose peut avoir deux usa
ges contraires, comme l’espée porte
paix par craincte & Justice: & porte
guerre par injure, & audace. Pource
guerre est necessaire pour avoir paix.
Ce que demonstre ung heaulme, en
temps de guerre servant aulx armes:
en temps de paix aux aveilles, miel, &
cire.

Notes:

1.  Cf. Anthologia graeca, 6.236, where bees nest in what were once the beaks (projections at the prow) of war-galleys.
