PRAYER. Lady: I offer you, together with the bouquet of gillyflower the vanilla, emblem of continence and the restrain that I promise to put over all my passions. Receive my flower and grant that my flesh may be controlled by the holy fear of God.
1. This plant fills the whole garden with a very strong fragrance; its flower has no beauty, but it serves to adorn the bouquet and perfumes it. It can not stand by itself, it needs someone to support it.
