    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,
    515 Which purchase if thou make, for fear of slips,
    Set thy seal manual on my wax-red lips.
