El Membrillo.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Precepto de Solon fuè que à la esposa
El membrillo por don se presentasse,
Por ser muy sana fruta y deleytosa,
Y que en la boca suave olor dexasse.[1]

Picea.

The spruce tree

EMBLEMA CCIII.

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.
