Woodblock for "Almost"
Venus and Adonis
Even as the sun with purple-colour'd face...
Over one arm the lusty courser's rein...
'I have been woo'd, as I entreat thee now...'
'Upon the earth's increase why shouldst thou feed...'
'Fondling,' she saith, 'since I have hemm'd thee here...'
But , lo! from forth a copse that neighbors by...
Full gently now she takes him by the hand...
'Had I no eyes, but ears, my ears would love...'
And at his look she flatly falleth down...
Now quick desire hath caught the yielding prey...
But all in vain; good queen, it will not be...
'But if thou needs wilt hunt, be rul'd by me...'
'As burning fevers, agues pale and faint...'
And now she beats her heart, whereat it groans...
By this, she hears the hounds are at a bay...
Whose frothy mouth, bepainted all with red...
And, being open'd threw unwilling light...
'Alas! poor world, what treasure have thou lost?...'
'It shall be cause of war and dire events...'
She bows her head, the new-sprung flower to smell...
