    Venus and Adonis (Quarto 1, 1593)

    He sees her comming, and begins to glow:
    Euen as a dying coale reuiues with winde,
    And with his bonnet hides his angrie brow,
    340Lookes on the dull earth with disturbed minde:
    Taking no notice that she is so nye,
    For all askance he holds her in his eye.
