Le Laurier.

Le Laurier monstre ou salut, ou danger,
Soubz le chevet faict vrayz songes songer.[1]

En l’art de Magie, le Laurier mis au feu, don-
ne Indice de mal, ou de bien avenir, & mis
soubz la teste du dormant, faict songer cho-
ses veritablement passées, praesentes, ou fu-
tures.

AULTRE.

Laurier est deu à Charles l’Empereur:
Telle coronne affiert au conquereur.

Les Empereurs apres leurs conquestes, & vi-
ctoires, triumphans portoient le Laurier en
main, & en teste, en branche, & en coronne.
Parquoy icy est assigné par maniere de gra-
tification à Charles cinquiesme Empereur,
retournant victorieux de Thunes en la Gou-lete[2], ou jadis fut Carthage.

Notes:

1.  The laurel was sacred to Apollo, god of prophecy. The priestess of Apollo at Delphi induced a prophetic trance by chewing laurel leaves. Prophecies were sometimes written on laurel leaves. If laurel leaves crackle when thrown into the flames, happiness is portended.

2.  La Goulette is the port of Tunis (Halq al Wadi).
