Trahison contre les siens.

Cane privée, & de gris emplumée
Aller, venir aux siens accoustumée
Voyant voler les sauvages ensemble,
Et cacquetant, avec elles s’assemble,
Tant qu’aulx filletz tenduz elle les dresse.
Prinses, font cry, Lors se taist la traistresse,
Et se pollut du sang de sa semblable,
Mortelle aux siens, aux aultres proufitable.[1]

Similitude des Canes domesticques, attirantes les
saulvages es filetz: aulx traistres Ganelons, qui
rendent ceulx de leur propre nation, gent, pais,
maison & sang, entre les mains de leurs enne-
mis mortelz.

Notes:

1.  Cf. Aesop, Fables, 282, where the decoy birds are pigeons.

    AD IDEM

    On the same thing

    Alveolis dum mella legit, percussit amorem,
    Furacem mala apes, & summis spicula liquit,
    In digitis, tumido gemit at puer ungue[1]
    Et quatit errabundus humum, Venerique dolorem,
    Indicat et graviter queritur, quod apicula parvum
    Ipsa inferre animal tam noxia vulnera possit.
    Cui ridens Venus, hanc imitaris tu quoque dixit
    Nate feram, qui das tot noxia vulnera parvus.[2]

    While he was taking honey from the hives, a vicious bee stung thieving Amor, and left its sting in the end of his finger. The boy in distress cried out as his finger-end swelled up. He ran about, stamping his foot, showed his hurt to Venus, and complained bitterly that a little bee, that tiny creature, could inflict such grievous wounds. Venus smiled at him and said, “You are like this creature, my son; small as you are you deal many a grievous wound”.

    Notes:

    1.  anxius is added here from the 1534 Paris/Wechel edition onwards. Omission upsets the scansion.

    2.  In later editions, this becomes clearly a separate emblem, but here should perhaps more properly be regarded as a second subscriptio for the previous emblem.
