L’Amendelier.

Apostrophe.

Amendelier, Pourquoy si tost floris?
Trop bons ne sont les trop prompts esperitz.[1]

L’Amendelier est le premier arbre qui fleurit, &
celluy qui plustost perit. Aussi les trop hastifz
esperitz (comme dict Quintilian) grand peine
jamais parviennent fruyct.

Notes:

1. See Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: ‘the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition’.
