e Zaninam,

              ut chiamat vitulum vacca dolenta suum.
            Cursitat huc illuc, nescit retrovare fiolum,
              smergolat echisonis per nemus omne cridis.
            Fert altam codam, se trigat, stendit orecchias,
   310        an scoltet puttum forte boare suum.
            Heu quia nil sentit, nec sentiet omnibus annis,
              namque suum pignus dulce becarus habet.

              nulla dat nerba cibum, nulla dat unda bibum.
   315      Me rursum trasportat amor de more cavalli,
              quem smaniare facit vista cavalla procul.
            Raspat et antrattum soghae retinacula spezzat,

            It rognendo viam, sofiat per utrumque canalem,
   320        cercat equam, sed non pazzus acattat equam.
            Dicere nil zovat famulo:--Sta, bestia, pru, sta;--
              nilque in crevello mostra biava trigat.
            Sola tamen potis est ill
