William Shakespeare

Venus and Adonis

24

'Thou canst not see one wrinkle in my brow;
Mine eyes are grey and bright, and quick in turning;
My beauty as the spring doth yearly grow;
My flesh is soft and plump, my marrow burning;
My smooth moist hand,were it with thy hand felt,
Would in thy palm dissolve, or seem to melt.
