Le Coing.

A la nouvelle espouse donnoit l’on
Jadis des coingz, par la loy de Solon.[1]
Bons sont au coeur: & rendent bonne aleine
Pour bien penser: sans parolle villaine.

Les Coingz confortent le coeur, & inspirent doulce alei-
ne à la bouche. Et d’iceulx les presens jadis faictz aulx nou
velles espouses, les admonnestoient de avoir le coeur net
en bonne, & honneste pensée: & la bouche de bonne odeur,
en pudicques, & honnestes parolles.

Abies.

The fir tree

Apta fretis abies in montibus editur altis:
Est & in adversis maxima commoditas.[1]

The fir tree that is fit to sail the sea grows high up on the hills. Even in hard circumstances, there is great advantage to be found.

Notes:

1.  This is because it grows strong by withstanding the gales and harsh weather. Contrast Anthologia Graeca, 9.30ff, 105, and the much-translated 376 for an opposing view of the fir tree: “how can the fir, storm-tossed while growing on land, resist the gales at sea?” 9.31 was translated by Alciato (Selecta epigrammata, p. 98).
