Que las vezes las cosas dules se
buelven amargas.

Ottava rhima.

A su madre dexando el Lydio infante [M]
Por yrse robar miel de una colmena
Pensando que tu abeja semejante
Fueras en condicion que en tu obra buena,
Mas bivora jamas con tal semblante
Como tu hiziste, execut su pęna,
Pues por tomar la miel sali picado.
No ay bien que con dolor no est mezclado.[1]

[Marginalia - link to text]Cupido Venus.

Notes:

1. This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.548 , where a baby, called Hermonax, is stung to death. See also Anthologia graeca 9.302 for another epigram treating the same incident.
