Le Coing.[1]

A la nouvelle espouse donnoit l’on
Jadis des Coings, par la loy de Solon.[2]
Bons sont au coeur: & rendent bonne aleine
Pour bien penser: sans parolle villaine.

Les Coings confortent le coeur, & inspirent douce
aleine à la bouche. Et d’iceulx les presens jadis faictz
aux nouvelles espouses, les admonnestoient de avoir le
coeur net en bonne, & honneste pensée: & la bouche de
bonne odeur, en pudiques, & honnestes parolles.

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.
