    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    "For there his smell with others being mingled,
    The hot scent-snuffing hounds are driven to doubt,
    Ceasing their clamorous cry till they have singled
    With much ado the cold fault cleanly out.
    695 Then do they spend their mouths; echo replies,
    As if another chase were in the skies.
