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


1.  See Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: “the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition”.
