El Box.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

El crespo y verde Box d’el qual se haze
La flauta en el sonido differente.[1]
Tambien serā seņal que satisfaze
De aquel que herido d’el Amor se siente:
Porque de amarillez estā teņido
Como el que d’el Amor se siente herido.[2]

Notes:

1.  For pipes of boxwood, see e.g. Ovid, Metamorphoses, 4.30.

2.  The lover should affect pallor and emaciation, as these will soften the lady’s heart; see Ovid, Ars Amatoria, 1.729ff.

Ilex.

The holm-oak

Duritie nimia[1] quōd 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’).
