tetrastichon.

Vere novo nullos ficus producere flores
Novit, at Autumno dulcia poma gerit:
Arboris huius erit fidus sectator amicus
Facto, non verbis, dando salutis opem.

In the first days of Spring the fig-tree cannot bring forth flowers, but she bears sweet fruit in the Autumn. A faithful friend will be like this tree: giving real help with deeds, not words.

quatrain.

Faire devons comme le figuier fait,
Qui sans florir porte fruictz Ó largesse:
Semblablement, les amys par effect
Faut secourir, sans user de promesse.
