Monstre ce qui est en toy.

Au S. Joachim Hopperus Conseiller du
Roy Catholique.[1]

D’un bec courbe’ & aigu tu perses ta poictrine,
Donnant a tes petiz le repas desiré.
Cherche dedans ton coeur ce qui est retiré,
Monstrant de ton esprit une semence digne.


1.  Joachim Hoppers: chief justice and royal counsellor to Philip II in the Netherlands. He wrote historically important notes on religious disputes in Holland and several legal commentaries. He also prepared the first historical map of the Netherlands (d. 1576).
