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.

COTOGNI.

Quince.


Precetto di Solon fu, ch’a li sposi
Il Cotogno per don s’appresentasse.
Questi al gusto son cari e dilettosi,
E soglion confortar le membra lasse.
Cosi deve il marito e la mogliera
Vita menar fra lor dolce e sincera.
