XXXV.

At picea emittas nullos quòd stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

    Picea.

    The spruce tree

    Emblema ccii.

    At picea emittat nullos quòd 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.

    PIcea facilè potest eum significare, qui sine liberis
    decedit. Aut referetur ad eum qui nullum sui mo-
    nimentum reliquerit, cuius nempe vita ac mors iux-
    tà aestimatur, ut ait Sallustius.

    Le pin.

    DU Pin, quoy que grand, on peut voir
    Ne sortir rejets de racine:
    Ce que pourra estre le signe
    D’un qui meurt sans enfans avoir.

    LE Pin peust representer celuy qui dece-
    de sans enfans. Ou sera prins pour quel-
    cun qui ne laisse point de memoire de soy,
    assavoir duquel en la vie & la mort on ne
    parle point, comme dit Salluste.
