tetrastichon.

Quae Strophadum volucres[1] tenuerunt littora tantum,
Et quae Teucrorum[2] diripuere dapes:
Nunc passim volitant, & totum diripit orbem
Haec hominum rabies, pestis & ira Deým.

The birds of the Strophades who held such an extent of shore, and who robbed the Trojans of their feast, now fly everywhere, and rob the whole earth: this madness of men, this plague and divine anger.

quatrain..

Au temps passť ne voloyent les Harpyies
Fort qu’en une isle infecte & trop immonde,
Mais en tous lieux elles vont aux espies,
Et de present volent par tout le monde.

Notes:

1.Birds of the Strophades: the Strophades are islands in the Ionian Sea, home of the Harpies; see Vergil, Aeneid, 3.210.

2.Teucria is another name for Troy.
