El Sauze.

TERCETO.

A’l Sauze llaṃ Homero pierdefruto,[1]  [M]
Y dị à entender que el que aborreçe el vino
Jamas en sciencia alguna es absoluto.

[Marginalia - link to text]ὦλεσίκαρπος

Notes:

1.  Homer, Odyssey, 10.510. See Pliny, Natural History, 16.46.110: the willow drops its seed before it is absolutely ripe, and for that reason was called by Homer ‘seed-loser’.

L’hierre.

L’hierre est ung arbre en verdeur triumphant,
Duquel Bacchus feit don à Cisse enfant,[1]
Errant gravit: ha grains d’or en couleur,
Verd par dedans, tout le reste ha palleur.

Palles d’estude: en honneur tousjours verdz.

Les Poëtes se coronnent de Lau
rier & de L’hierre, qui tousjours
verdoie par dedans, par dehors
est palle, & porte bayes de cou-
leur d’or, pour enseigne que ilz
sont palles d’estude par dehors,
& dedans leurs escriptz tousjours
reverdissans par aeternel honneur,
precieux & illustres comme L’or.
