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.

    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.
