Venus and Adonis Book Summary
‘Tis but a kiss I beg; why art thou coy? 96
‘I have been woo’d, as I entreat thee now,
Even by the stern and direful god of war,
Whose sinewy neck in battle ne’er did bow,
Who conquers where he comes m every jar; 100
Yet hath he been my captive and my slave,
And begg’d for that which thou unask’d shalt have.
‘Over my altars hath he hung his lance,
His batter’d shield, his uncontrolled crest, 104
And for my sake hath learn’d to sport and dance
To toy, to wanton, dally, smile, and jest;
Scorning his churlish drum and ensign red
Making my arms his field, his tent my bed. 108
‘Thus he that overrul’d I oversway’d,
Leading him prisoner in a red-rose chain:
Strong-temper’d steel his stronger strength obey’d,
Yet was he servile to my coy disdain. 112

For mastering her that foil’d the god of fight.
Touch but my lips with those falr lips of thine,–
Though mine be not so fair,
