EMBLEMA CCXI [=206] .

Amygdalus.

The almond

Cur properans foliis praemittis amygdale flore,
Odi pupillos praecocis ingenii.[1]

Almond tree, why are you in such a hurry to put out flowers before your leaves? I hate precocious pupils.

Das CCXI [=206] .

Mandelbaum.

Mandelbaum warumb eilst so sehr
Das du dein blst stost vorn Blettern
Ich hassz die Knaben so da sind
Zu uberhuy und all zugschwind.

    L’Amendelier.

    Apostrophe.

    Amendelier, Pourquoy si tost floris?
    Trop bons ne sont les trop prompts esperitz.[1]

    L’Amendelier est le premier arbre qui fleurit, &
    celluy qui plustost perit. Aussi les trop hastifz
    esperitz (comme dict Quintilian) grand peine
    jamais parviennent fruyct.
