    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    But all in vain, good queen; it will not be.
    She hath assailed as much as may be proved.
    Her pleading hath deserved a greater fee.
    610She's love; she loves; and yet she is not loved.
    "Fie, fie," he says. "You crush me. Let me go.
    You have no reason to withhold me so."
