El cautivo por la gula.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

Unas conchas abiertas visto avia
Un raton, y Ó mordellas allegando
Cerraronse, a’quel tiempo que ponia
La barba en ellas, a’l qual apretando
Tuvieron en su carcel encerrado
Donde por su querer el avia entrado.[1]

Notes:

1. áThis poem is based on Anthologia graeca 9.86.
