the builder oak, eke the hardy ash, the elm the pillar and the coffin for corpses,
the boxwood for horns, the holly for whip-handles, the fir to bear sails,
the cypress to mourn death, the yew the bowman, the aspen for smooth shafts,
the olive of peace, the drunken vine, the victor palm, and the laurel for divination
