"Under an oak, whose boughs were marr'd with age/ And high top bald with dry antiquity,/ A wretched, ragged man, o'ergrown with hair, lay sleeping on his back: about his neck/ A green and gilded snake had wreathed itself,/ Who with her head, nimble in threats, approach'd/ The opening of his mouth; but suddenly,/ Seeing Orlando, it unlink'd itself,/ And with indented glides did slip away,/ Into a bush; under which bush's shade/ A lioness, with udders all drawn dry/ Lay crouching, head on ground with cat-like watch." As You Like It. [Pp. 6-7.]
