Le Roure, ou Suse.

Le Roure fend par trop dur estre,[1] & rond.
Sedition civile en soy se rompt.

Le Roure ou Suse, que est la plus dure espece de chesne: est
en ses parties essentiales si astrinct, & serré avec durté na-
turelle, que de soy mesme il se eclate, & fend: ses parties se
entrelaissantes, & desjoignantes jusque au coeur, d’ond puys
apres par sa durté il donne lieu, & ouverture à mettre le
coing dedans qui le met par pieces, & l’envoie au feu. Ainsi

Picea.

At picea emittat nullos quòd stirpe stolones:
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.
