    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    "Pure lips, sweet seals in my soft lips imprinted,
    What bargains may I make still to be sealing?
    To sell myself I can be well contented,
    So thou wilt buy and pay and use good dealing,
    515Which purchase if thou make, for fear of slips,
    Set thy seal manual on my wax-red lips.
