The Perfection

See, the honorable king holds in the left hand a chain
attached to the neck of the lion which he leads at certain hours.

In the right hand he carries a staff wherewith he shows an ugly worm.
With many fruits, oh noble sun, stands here your proud tree.

In the beginning search for the root if you want to break the fruit;
Otherwise you will have no fruit, be it then that you looked for its seed.
