Groves, Plant (v.)

Titus Andronicus, [2.3.55-65]. Bassianus. “Who have we here? Rome’s royal Empress,/ Unfurnish’d of her well-beseeming troop?/ Or is it Dian, habited like her,/ Who hath abandoned her holy groves/ To see the general hunting in this forest?” Tamora. “Saucy controller of my private steps!/ Had I the pow’r that some say Dian had,/ Thy temples should be planted presently/ With horns, as was Actaeon’s, and the hounds/ Should drive upon thy new-transformed limbs,/ Unmannerly intruder as thou art!”
