ELCE.

Holm-oak.


Chi voul l’Elce piegar, per esser dura,
Si rompe e spezza: cosi alcun Signore
Mentre d’esser severo ha troppa cura,
E punir aspramente il popol suole,
Pon la discordia, e la concordia fura,
Contrario effetto a quel che brama e vuole;
Che non offende alturi cosi la legge,
Quanto la leggerezza di chi regge.

Picea.

The spruce tree

EMBLEMA CCIII.

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.
