    Venus and Adonis (Quarto 1, 1593)

    VVhat should I do, seeing thee so indeed?
    That tremble at th'imagination,
    The thought of it doth make my faint heart bleed,
    670And feare doth teach it diuination;
    I prophecie thy death, my liuing sorrow,
    If thou incounter with the boare to morrow.
