Whitney's Choice of Emblemes 133

Prudentes vino abstinent

Loe here the vine dothe claspe, to prudent Pallas tree,
The league is nought, for virgines wise, doe Bacchus frendship flee.

Why vexe yee mee yee boughes? since I am Pallas tree:
Remove awaie your clusters hence, the virgin wine doth flee.
