tetrastichon.

Glauca salix properè, sed tardè crescit oliva:
Seriùs haec moritur, sed perit illa cito:
Ingenii longo vis tardi tempore durat,
Praecocis subitò vis perit ingenii.

As a grey willow grows quickly, while the olive grows slowly (the one lasts longer, but the other dies swiftly), so the force of a slow talent lasts longer, while the force of a precocious talent perishes swiftly.

quatrain.

Le saux vient tost, & l’olyvier tard croist:
Cestuy meurt tard, l’autre vit peu déspace:
Engin soudain pert tost ce qu’il reçoit:
Engin tardif tient bien ce qu’il embrasse.
