CONCORDIA.
Esempio della Concordia.

CONCORD.
An example of Concord.


Di stabile Concordia esempio e segno
Son le Cornachie, e mai non rompon fede.
Quinci guardan lo scetro; perche un regno
Per Concordia s’accresce e ha fermo piede.
Ma s’ella manca, privo di sostegno.
La sua ruina in picciol tempo vede.
Che la discordia in lui movendo l’ale,
Tanto abbatte e distrugge, quanto assale.

CONCORDE.

Marcque de Concorde.

Corneilles hont merveilleuse concorde,
Leur foy jamais d’ensemble ne discorde.[1]
Sceptres des Roys portent de telz oyseaux,
Car par accord Princes sont bas, ou haulx,
Lequel tollu discordes, & desroys,
Viennent soubdain, tirans la mort des Roys.

C’est ce que Micipsa en Saluste dict, que par concor-
de les petites choses croissent. Et les grandes (com-
me Royaumes & Roys) deschéent par discorde.

Notes:

1.  See Aelian, De natura animalium 3.9. on the mutual love and loyalty of crows.
