    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    Which after him she darts, as one on shore
    Gazing upon a late embarkèd friend
    Till the wild waves will have him seen no more,
    820Whose ridges with the meeting clouds contend.
    So did the merciless and pitchy night,
    Fold in the object that did feed her sight.
