Picea.

The spruce tree

EMBLEMA CCII.

At picea emittat nullos qụd stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.

Le Buyx.

Buyx tousjourd verd, crespe au faist de ses fustes,
Est bois, duquel on faict sonnantes flustes.[1]
Propre aulx amours: mais de palle couleur:
Palles amans sont, par doulce douleur.[2]

Le Buyx garde sa vive verdure, & ha bois de jaune pal-
leur, duquel on faict flustes harmonieuses, (mesmement chez
Rafy Lyonnois, excellent ouvrier) pour sonner amoureu-
ses chansons, & aubades. Ainsi les amoureux sont en leur
vive chaleur, quelque froid qu’il face, hont palle jaunisse
de fievre transie, & en parolle, sont doulx & plaisans.

Notes:

1.  For pipes of boxwood, see e.g. Ovid, Metamorphoses, 4.30.

2.  The lover should affect pallor and emaciation, as these will soften the lady’s heart; see Ovid, Ars Amatoria, 1.729ff.
