AND AGAIN: THE DEDICATION TO THE SOLEDADES

     ¡Oh Duque esclarecido!,
templa en sus ondas tu fatiga ardiente,
y, entregados tus miembros al reposo,
sobre el de grama césped no desnudo,
déjate un rato hallar del pie acertado
que sus errantes pasos ha votado
a la real cadena de tu escudo.

Dedication: lines 26 - 32. (Alonso).

The Duque is invited to relax his feet in a fountain, and, once back on safe ground (the "grama césped no desnudo"),*) to listen to the (rhythmic) verses ("del pie acertado") of the pilgrim who has dedicated these verses to the chain which features on the Duke's shield.
