Tart e tost son doas cauzas per natura,
Que cascuna val e notz mot soven,
C'aisel que deu sabon li tardamen,
E la cocha li desplai ses mezura,
Ni-l crezeires non a plazer en tarda,
E plai li fort can pren tost so c'agarda.
Mais en mans locx val may tarda que cocha,
Sol contra Dieu no si fassa la locha,
Car satisfar a Dieu no-s pot cochar
Nulh hom, ans vey lo pus cochos tarzar.
