Le citron.

XL.

Le citron doux amer ŕ Venus bien convient,
Car Amour en son miel beaucoup d’amer contient.

Commentaires.

On peut aussi dire que le citron est le symbole de
l’amour: car il est de couleur d’or: & sa saveur est
bien aucunement douce & austere, mais son escorce
est du tout amere. Ainsi l’orde volupté rid de plein
abord, & semble estre toute d’or: mais apres qu’elle a
baillé un peu du doux, elle baille l’amer ŕ plein go-
det.

    Le Buyx.

    Buyx tousjourd verd, crespe au faist de ses fustes,
    Est bois, duquel on faict sonnantes flustes.[1]
    Propre aulx amours: mais de palle couleur:
    Palles amans sont, par doulce douleur.[2]

    Le Buyx garde sa vive verdure, & ha bois de jaune pal-
    leur, duquel on faict flustes harmonieuses, (mesmement chez
    Rafy Lyonnois, excellent ouvrier) pour sonner amoureu-
    ses chansons, & aubades. Ainsi les amoureux sont en leur
    vive chaleur, quelque froid qu’il face, hont palle jaunisse
    de fievre transie, & en parolle, sont doulx & plaisans.

    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.
