Her lily hand her rosy cheek lies under, (387)

Cozening the pillow of a lawful kiss; (388)

Who, therefore angry, seems to part in sunder, (389)

Swelling on either side to want his bliss; (390)

Between whose hills her head entombed is:
Where, like a virtuous monument, she lies, (392)

To be admired of lewd unhallow'd eyes.
