Grace doibt estre rendue.

La Cigoigne est tresnoble par pyti,
Ces petitz nudz nourrit en amytie,
Les esperant rendre telle charesse,
Quand d’eulx aura besoing en sa vieillesse:
quoy ne fault sa bonne geniture,
Qui la soustient, & donne nourriture.[1]

Les bestes brutes monstrent aulx hom-
mes rendre leurs peres & meres, la vie
& nourriture d’iceulx receue.


1. See Pliny, Natural History 10.32.63: cranes care for their parents’ old age in their turn. See also Aelian, De natura animalium 3.23.
