    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    He sees her coming and begins to glow,
    Even as a dying coal revives with wind,
    And with his bonnet hides his angry brow,
    340Looks on the dull earth with disturbèd mind,
    Taking no notice that she is so nigh,
    For all askance he holds her in his eye.
