    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    "O, let him keep his loathsome cabin still.
    Beauty hath naught to do with such foul fiends.
    Come not within his danger by thy will.
    640They that thrive well take counsel of their friends.
    When thou didst name the boar, not to dissemble,
    I feared thy fortune, and my joints did tremble.
