Que la bienaventurança d’esta vida no
dura mas de un momento.

Ottava rhima.

Creçiò una calabaza à tanta altura,
Que se ençimò à la cumbre de un gran pino
Y de ver su verdor, tan gran locura
Y vanagloria à su pensar la vino
Que pensò ser la principal criatura.
Mas esta gloria no serà contino
(Dixola el pino) que vernà el invierno
Que seque tu verdor caduco y tierno.

In momentaneam felicitatem.

Transitory success

LXVIII.

Aëriam propter crevisse Cucurbita pinum
Dicitur, & grandi luxuriasse coma.
Cùm ramos complexa, ipsumque egressa cacumen,
Se praestare aliis credidit arboribus.
Cui pinus, nimium brevis est haec gloria: nam te
Protinùs adveniet quae malè perdat[1] hyems.

A gourd, it is said, grew beside a lofty pine and flourished with abundant foliage. When it had enveloped the branches and grown taller than the tree-top, it then thought itself superior to the other trees. The pine said to it: This glory is exceedingly brief. For winter will shortly come which will utterly destroy you.

Von kurtzwirigem gluck.

LXVIII.

Es wuechß bey einer Feychten hoch
Ein Curbis gar in kurtzer zeyt
So vast, das er sy uberkroch,
Acht sich des gar stoltz und gmeyd,
Als wer sein gleich nit nah und weyt:
Sagt im die Feycht, nun harr und peyt,
Schier kumbt des kalten windter schneyd,
Nimbt dier allen deinn stoltz und freyd.

Notes:

1.  Textual variant: ‘perdet’.
