El prudente sin eloquenia.

Ottava rhima.

Traxo por armas Athenas pintada
Una lechuza, que por mas prudente
Entre las aves, de Pallas amada
Muestra al hombre entendido y no eloquente.
Aquesta sucedi de do fue echada
La parlera corneja y imprudente.[1]
Y de aqui muestra como en las razones
No consiste el saber de los varones.

Notes:

1. The crow was dismissed from Athena’s service for telling tales, and was replaced by the owl. See Ovid, Metamorphoses, 2.562-5. This story is represented in Aneau, ‘Periculum in terra, periculum in mari’ ([FANa029]).
