L’Amendelier.

Apostrophe.

Amendelier, Pourquoy si tost floris?
Trop bons ne sont les trop prompts esperitz.[1]

L’Amendelier est le premier arbre qui fleurit, &
celluy qui plustost perit. Aussi les trop hastifz
esperitz (comme dict Quintilian) grand peine
jamais parviennent fruyct.

Notes:

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

Malus medica.

The citron

Aurea sunt Veneris poma haec, iucundus amaror
Indicat, est graecis sic glycypicros amor.[1]

These golden fruits belong to Venus: the sweet bitterness tells us that. Even so is love glukupikros for the Greeks.

Notes:

1. γλυκύπικρος, ‘bitter-sweet’, a concept often applied to Love in Hellenistic epigrams.
