Adonis’ Garden

King Henry the Sixth, part I, [1.6.4-10]. Charles. “Divinest creature, Astraea’s daughter,/ how shall I honor thee for this success?/ Thy promises are like Adonis’ garden,/ That one day bloom’d and fruitful were the next./ France, triumph in thy glorious prophetess!/ Recover’d is the town of Orleans./ More blessed hap did ne’er befall our state.”
