L’Orengier.

Pommes d’Orenge Venus pour aimer
Sont. Car d’Amour le fruyct est doulx amer.

L’Orengier porte pommes de couleur d’or, de sa-
veur interieure austere, avec doulceur, & d’escorce
amere, & telle est l’affection de celluy amour, duquel
Venus est Princesse, laquelle aussi fut par Paris ad
juge la pomme d’or.

El Alamo blanco.

TERCETO.

De Hercules los cabellos cie,[1] y muestra
El Alamo como la noche y dia
El uno a’l atro [=otro] sus vees empresta.[2]

Notes:

1. The white poplar was dedicated to Hercules. According to Pausanias, Periegesis, 5.14.2, Hercules introduced it to Greece. According to another story, Hercules on his way back from the Underworld garlanded his head with stems from a white poplar growing beside the Acheron, a memorial of the nymph Leuke (White) carried off by Pluto.

2. ‘noche y dia’, a reference to the dark green surface and white underside of the white poplar leaf. According to Pliny, Natural History, 16.36.87, the leaves of the white poplar turn over at the summer solstice. Hercules was equated with the sun: Macrobius, Saturnalia, 1.20.6 and 10.
