            CVIII

"But even as some assassin or night-rover,
Seeing his fellow wound upon the wheel,
Awed by the agony resolves with zeal
His life to 'mend, and character recover;
But when the fearful spectacle is over,
Reacts his crimes with easy unconcern;
So my amours on my despair return,
That I should die, as I have lived, a lover!"

autógrafo

Juan de Mena, 1444
Translated by J.H. Wiffen (in poetryarchive.com)
