Death, death; oh amiable lovely death!Thou odoriferous stench, sound rotteness, Arise forth from thy couch of lasting night, Thou hate and terrour to prosperity, And I will kiss thy detestable bones, And put my eye-balls in thy vaulty brows, And ring these fingers with thy houshold worms. Shakesp.4. To restrain a hog by a ring in his nose.
