Le tremblement si fort au mois de May,

Venus aussi Cancer,Mars,en Nonnay,
Tombera gresle lors plus grosse qu'vn euf.

Translation (Van Berkel, 2002)
A very mighty trembling in the month of May,
Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury in Bull,
Venus also, Cancer, Mars in Nonnay
Hail will fall larger than an egg.

Van Berkel categorized this quatrain as a horary chart quatrain.
The second and third line refer - in detail - to a configuration by mentioning zodiacal positions of five planets.
In the imagination period (October 16, 1524 - February 27, 1554), this configuration occurred between May 3 and May 22, 1549. On May 3, 1549, Venus started moving through Taurus. The last day on which Mars was in Cancer, was May 22, 1549. These data indicate a fulfilment year in the period around 3440 - 3460.
The first line. The month of fulfilment is May. Applying the CD4-system shows that the composing date of this quatrain was May 9, 1549. The fulfilment date of this quatrain is around May 6, 3455.

Le tremblement si fort au mois de may,
Saturne, Caper, Iupiter, Mercure au boeuf:
Venus aussi, Cancer,Mars, en Nonnay,
Tombera gresle lors plus grosse qu'vn oeuf.

Translation (Wöllner, 1926)
Das sehr starke Beben im Monat Mai,
Wenn Saturn in Steinbock, Jupiter und Merkur in Stier,
Venus auch in Stier, Mars in Krebs steht. Im November darauf
fällt Hagel, dicker als ein Ei.

Wöllner writes that the planetary positions, mentioned in this quatrain, occurred around the end of May 1312 and the beginning of May 1549. He has calculated that these planetary positions also occur on April 8, 1929 (Julian calendar) and the beginning of May 3755.
Wöllner thinks that this quatrain points to 1549, since there was a heavy earthquake in May and extreme hail in November. In the case of new earthquakes and extreme hail, the given planetary positions would re-occur.
