    Venus and Adonis (Quarto 1, 1593)

    Oh let him keep his loathsome cabin still,
    Beautie hath nanght to do with such foule fiends,
    Come not within his danger by thy will,
    640They that thriue well, take counsell of their friends,
    VVhen thou didst name the boare, not to dissēble,
    I feard thy fortune, aud my ioynts did tremble.
