EMBLEMA CCXIIII [=209] .

Picea.

The spruce tree

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.

Das CCXIIII [=209] .

Füchtenbaum.

Aber dieweil kein neben Gschoß
Der Füchtenbaum beyseits außstoß
Ist er ein anzeig und gefert
Diß, der on Leibserben hinfehrt.

    El Abeto.

    TERCETO.

    Nasçe en los altos montes el Abeto
    Para el mar conveniente.[1] En las adversas
    Cosas, siempre ay de bien algun secreto.

    Notes:

    1.  This is because it grows strong by withstanding the gales and harsh weather. Contrast Anthologia Graeca, 9.30ff, 105, and the much-translated 376 for an opposing view of the fir tree: ‘how can the fir, storm-tossed while growing on land, resist the gales at sea?’ 9.31 was translated by Alciato (Selecta epigrammata, p. 98).
