Nature, that gave the bee so feat a grace
To find honey of so wondrous fashion,
Hath taught the spider out of the same place
To fetch poison, by strange alteration.
Though this be strange, it is a stranger case
With one kiss by secret operation
Both these at once in those your lips to find,
In change whereof I leave my heart behind.
