English translation (Jean Paul Richter, 1883)[]

Leonardo da Vinci - Ashmole Museum - Maiden with a Unicorn.jpg

The unicorn, because of its intemperance, not knowing how to control itself before the delight it feels towards maidens, forgets its ferocity and wildness, and casting aside all fear it will go up to the seated maiden and sleep in her lap, and thus the hunter takes it.
