    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    Variable passions throng her constant woe,
    As striving who should best become her grief.
    All entertained, each passion labors so
    970That every present sorrow seemeth chief,
    But none is best; then join they all together,
    Like many clouds consulting for foul weather.
