Ilex.

The holm-oak

Duritie nimia[1] qud sese rumperet ilex,
Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

Notes:

1. Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).

MORO.

Mulberry.


Il tardo Moro mai non getta foglia
Finche’l freddo non mancato e spento:
E pur avanti che ignorantia toglia
E chi ad haver di savio il grido intento,
