tetrastichon.

Umbra velut lumen sequitur (quam corpus opacum
Reddit) & obscuro nulla fit umbra loco:
Sic quem nullus honos, aut stemmata nulla perennant,
Semper ab invidiae turbine tutus erit.

As shadow follows light (for an opaque body makes it) and there no shadow falls in a dark place, so he whom no honour or family tree preserve is always free from the storm of envy.

quatrain.

L’on ne voit umbré, ou n’a point de lumiere,
Le lieu obscur umbre ne peult avoir:
Semblablement (par chose coustumiere)
Ou gloire n’est, envie n’a pouvoir.
