In deprehensum.

Caught!

LX.

Iamdudum quacunque fugis te persequor, at nunc
Cassibus in nostris denique captus ades.
Amplius haud poteris vires eludere nostras,
Ficulno anguillam strinximus in folio.[1]

For a long time now I have been pursuing you wherever you flee; but now you are here, at long last caught in our net. You will no longer be able to elude our power - we have gripped the eel tight in a fig-leaf.

Ein ergriffner.

LX.

Wilt das dier ein Al nit entwisch,
Fa▀ in gar wol in Feygen blat,
Nit anders helt man disen fisch.
Manch schalck ist auch so gschwind und drat,
Das er sich schwimbt aus allem bad:
Doch bhangt ein soelcher Fuchs zu loetzt
Und wierd begriffen in der that,
Wo man in mit seins gleichen hoetzt.

Notes:

1. áThe rough surface of the fig-leaf made it suitable for gripping slippery objects. See Erasmus, Adagia 395, Folio ficulno tenes anguillam.
