BOSSO.

Box-tree.


S’adopra il Bosso a far varii strumenti,
Onde si forma poi suon grato e caro;
Et i suoi rami a le felice genti
Ornano spesso alto edificio e raro.
Ma perche anchora pallido, assomiglia
A chi del’amor suo tormento piglia.

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.
