Que se Ó de resisitir Ó lo que appremia.

Ottava rhima.

Quanto de mayor carga es opprimida
La palma, tanto mas resiste y se alša
Y lleva fruta dulce y escogida.[1]
Aquesta fruta tu Christiano alcanša,
Que el que paciente fuere en esta vida
Que por suffrir en la otra mas se ensalša
D’este contraste el pręmio merecido
AcanšarÓ por el trabajo avido.

Notes:

1. áThe reaction of palm to a heavy weight is mentioned in various ancient sources, e.g. Pliny, Natural History 16.81.223; Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 3.6.

Il se fault endurcir contre les ad-
versitez presentes.

Apostrophe.

Contre la charge hault la Palme s’eleve
Et croist tant plus, que sa charge est plus greve,[1]
Glandz odorans portant, & delectables,[2]
Ayans l’honneur premier es bonnes tables.
Or monte (enfant) es rameaulx le fruict pris:
Car Qui sera constant: aura le pris.

Pour quelque adversitÚ, ou contrarietÚ qui advien-
ne, point ne fault laisser une bonne entreprinse, Mais
perseverer constamment jusque Ó fin heureuse.

Notes:

1. áThe reaction of palm to a heavy weight is mentioned in various ancient sources, e.g. Pliny, Natural History 16.81.223; Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 3.6. See also Erasmus, Parabolae p.263. It probably refers to a plank of palm-wood, rather than a branch of the living tree.

2. áSee Erasmus, Parabolae p.241: ‘the palm-tree, having bark with knife-sharp edges, is difficult to climb, but it bears delicious fruit’.
