…“Never did passenger in summer’s heat
More thirst for drink than she for this good turn.
Her help she sees, but help she cannot get;
She bathes in water, yet her fire must burn:
‘O! pity,’ ’gan she cry, ’flint-hearted boy:
’Tis but a kiss I beg; why art thou coy?…”
Excerpt from the written work, Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare
