    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    "What should I do, seeing thee so indeed,
    That tremble at th' imagination?
    The thought of it doth make my faint heart bleed,
    670And fear doth teach it divination.
    I prophesy thy death, my living sorrow,
    If thou encounter with the boar tomorrow.
