Works of the great poets

William Shakespeare

Venus and Adonis

95

What wax so frozen but dissolves with tempering,
And yields at last to every light impression?
Things out of hope are compass'd oft with venturing,
Chiefly in love, whose leave exceeds commission
Affection faints not like a pale-fac'd coward,
But then woos best when most his choice is froward.
