Pudiera el labio remojar en ella:

En cierne, desvalido, é ignorante.

Porque en la piedra que en mis hombros veo,
Que la fortuna me cargó pesada,
Mis mal logradas esperanzas leo.

Se me representaron que pudieran
Torcer la voluntad aficionada,

Si en aquel mismo instante no acudieran

En la dificil cumbre deste monte,
Y una guirnalda de laurel ponerme;
