The Passionate Pilgrim, IX.
Fair was the morn when the fair queen of love
was the morn when the fair queen of love,
* * * * * * *
Paler for sorrow than her milk-white dove,
For Adons sake, a youngster proud and wild;
Her stand she takes upon a steep-up hill:
Anon Adonis comes with horn and hounds;
She, silly queen, with more than loves good will,
Forbade the boy he should not pass those grounds:
Once, quoth she, did I see a fair sweet youth
Here in these brakes deep-wounded with a boar,
Deep in the thigh, a spectacle of ruth!
See, in my thigh, quoth she, here was the sore.
She showed hers; he saw more wounds than one,
And blushing fled, and left her all alone.
