Worship at the Altar of Venus

"I'll be the park, and thou shalt be my deer;

Feed where thou wilt, on mountain or in dale:

Graze on my lips, and if those hills be dry,

Stray lower, where the pleasant fountains lie."

-- William Shakespeare,  Venus and Adonis

I always knew Shakespeare was brilliant. This just confirms it.

It's quite delicious -- he had a knowing tongue.
