El viejo enamorado de la muger moça.

Ottava rhima.[1]

Teniendo fecha >Sophocles postura
Con Arquetippe, y siendo descubierto,
La gente moça reprehender procura,
Con estos motes aquel desconcierto.
Qual la lechuza està en la sepultura,
Qual està el buho sobre el cuerpo muerto,
Tal Arquetippe està con el buen viejo
Sophocles, reçiviendo d’el consejo.[2]
