Rose, acorn

Cymbeline, [2.2.8-19]. Posthumus. “O, vengeance, vengeance!/ Me of my lawful pleasure she restrain’d/ And pray’d me oft forbearance; did it with/ A prudency so rosy the sweet view on ‘t/ Might well have warm’d old Saturn, that I thought her/ As chaste as unsunn’d snow. O, all the devils!/ This yellow Iachimo, in an hour, was ‘t not?/ Or less? At first? Perchance he spoke not, but,/ Like a full-acorn’d boar, a German one,/ Cried ‘O!’ and mounted; found no opposition/ But what he look’d for should oppose and she/ Should from encounter guard.”
