The winds and persecutions of the sky.
And by the happy hollow of a tree
That ever penury, in contempt of man,
Does not attend my taking. Whiles I may 'scape,
Brought near to beast: my face I'll grime with filth;
Blanket my loins: elf all my hair in knots;
I will preserve myself: and am bethought
I heard myself proclaim'd;
And with presented nakedness out-face
Escaped the hunt. No port is free; no place,
That guard, and most unusual vigilance,
To take the basest and most poorest shape
