La višiosa delicadeza.

Ottava rhima.

Muestra el Armi˝o la delicadeza
Višiosa,[1] mas la causa no se dello.
Por aventura es porque en su terneza
Se halla luxuria? ˛ porque el tierno vello
D’el orna de las damas la belleza?
Llamaron Ó la Marta unos zibello,[2]
Por ser de la luxuria afęminada
(Como el Almizque) se˝al apropiada.

Notes:

1. áThe ‘white mouse’ of the original Latin is here given as ‘armi˝o’ = ermine.

2. ámarta / zibello, ‘civet cat’, one source of musk, an ingredient in many perfumes.
