tetrastichon.

Intrat ut in nassam nullo conamine piscis,
Inde revertendi cui via nulla datur:
Sic via proclivis vitii, qua posse reverti
Ingressum proprio non datur auxilio.

As a fish enters a net without effort, but finds no way out at all, so the way to sin is easy, but it is impossible for one who has journeyed on it to return by his own powers.

quatrain.

Entrer l’on voit le poisson dans la nasse
De son vouloir, & ne s’en peut partir:
Pecheur entrant en vice, sans la grace
De Dieu, ne peut d’yceluyresortir.
