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.

   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
