Shepherds, all, and maidens fair, Fold your flocks up, for the air 'Gins to thicken, and the sun Already his great course hath run...

See the heavy clouds low falling,...

Hovering o'er the wanton face Of these pastures, where they come,..

Therefore, from such danger lock Every one his lovèd flock; And let your dogs lie loose without,

Lest the wolf come as a scout...

John Fletcher, 1579-1625
