Ilex.

The holm-oak

Duritie nimia[1] qụd sese rumperet ilex,
Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

Notes:

1.  Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).

Le Pin.

Le Pin ne faict nulz regetz de racine
D’homme qui meurt sans enfans, c’est le signe.

Le Pin brun, depuys le pied, jusque à la sime, ne pro-
duyct nulz regetz de son tronc, designant ung hom-
me qui decede sans laisser hoir de son corps.
