  • …run A cold and drowsy humour; for no pulse Shall keep his native progress, but surcease: No warmth, no breath, shall testify thou livest; The roses in thy lips and cheeks shall fade To paly ashes; thy eyes’ windows fall, Like death, when he shuts up the day of life; Each part, depriv’d of supple government, Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death: And in this borrow’d likeness of shrunk death Thou shalt continue two-and-forty hours, And then awake as from a pleasant sleep.
