Pine and Palm

Figure descriptions
A decorated initial letter “A” is contained within a double-ruled rectangular border. There are palm branches inset into the border, behind and around the initial letter. Behind the initial letter, there is a vignette featuring a single tall pine tree. Rowan grows near the base of the tree, and a bird flies in the distance. 1/6 page.
A group of figures rest in the countryside next to a large boulder. There is a single pine tree behind the boulder. One bandsman sleeps in the shadow of the boulder; a drum, a horn, and bagpipes lie in the grass behind his back. A woman sits with her back against the boulder, holding her knees in her arms. Her eyes are also closed. There is a tambourine sitting on the boulder at her side. Two girls sit in front of the woman; they are stringing rowan-berries on threads. There are additional boulders around the figures, with small plants, including rowan, growing around them. A large plain stretches into the distance. The figures are identified in the poem text as a travelling band. 1/2-page illustration contained within a dark, medium-weight border.
