Their place of rest, and Providence their guide;
They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way.

Like a bold flood o’erbear.

And sighed my English breath in foreign clouds,
Eating the bitter bread of banishment.

A sin-absolver, and my friend profess’d,
To mangle me with that word—banished?
        Romeo and Juliet. Act III. Sc. 3. L. 47.
