Opis Indiga

Here is today's emblem and distich by Joachim Camerarius, 1:32. The emblem is inspired by a line from Juvenal 8, stratus humi palmes viduas desiderat ulmos.

Opis Indiga
Stratus humi absentem palmes sterilescit ob ulmum:
Indiget alterius quilibet auxilio.

Here is the vocabulary:

ops - power, might, resources
indigus - need, lacking
sterno - spread, lay out, lay low
humus - ground, soil, earth
absens - absent, missing
palmes - young vine branch
sterilesco - become barren, sterile
ob - on account of, because
ulmus - elm tree
indigeo - need, lack, require
alter - other, another
quilibet - whoever, anyone, everyone
auxilium - help, aid
