In labore fructus.[1]

Labour brings fruit

Une pierre en ce champ par concorde fait joindre
Les deux soigneux oyseaux nommez Paladiens[2]
Qui du bout de leur bec scavent fort bien attaindre
Au present plus loué que ne sont nulle biens.
Cecy fut jadis mis dedans les armoiries
De Sambuc, pour monstrer que par art studieux

Il doibt faire durer malgré toutes envies
L’honneur & le renom de soy & ses ayeaux.

En couleurs, pour monstrer que dessus sa maison
Il y aura tousjours les honneurs favorables,
Qui la feront florir & recroistre à foison.
La victoire donra desormais la louange
A l’homme vertueux & à l’homme constant:
Car douce, comme elle est, tousjours elle se range
Vers cil qui de douceur sera le plus content.
Notes:

1.  This woodcut was also used in Junius in his emblem dedicated to Sambucus (no. 21, [FJUa021]).

2.  The birds of Palamedes were cranes. Palamedes, one of the Greeks attacking Troy who was framed by his own jealous colleagues and stoned, was said to have invented certain letters of the alphabet by watching cranes in flight.
