Arbore secho [mai né] aqua torbida No me deleta mai per questo dubito: Vass'en la 'state, 'l verno ven de subito.

Tal vissi et tal me vivo et posso scrivere Ch'a donna non è più che honesta vivere.

Thus I lived and thus I live, and I can write that nothing is better for a woman than an honest life.
