La invidia.

TERCETOS.

Por declarar la invidia y sus enojos
Pintaron una vieja que comia
Bivoras, y con mal contino, de ojos.
Su propio coraçon muerde à porfia
Y lleva un palo en la mano de abrojos
Que le punçan las manos noche y dia.[1]

Notes:

1.  This description is taken from Ovid, Metamorphoses, 2.760ff., a depiction of the House of Envy.
