    Venus and Adonis (Quarto 1, 1593)

    VVhich after him she dartes, as one on shore
    Gazing vpon a late embarked friend,
    Till the wilde waues will haue him seene no more,
    820VVhose ridges with the meeting cloudes contend:
    So did the mercilesse, and pitchie night,
    Fold in the obiect that did feed her sight.
