EMBLEME XXXVII.

La vertu est difficile, mais fructueuse.

Cybelle, tu portas une pomme excellente
Qui cache soubz sa peau dure, espaisse & poignante
Un noyau plein d’humeur exquis & doucereus.
D’un rocher aspre & dur la saincte sapience
Est toutte environnee, & pleine d’excellence
Elle abonde en un fruict plaisant & gracieus.
