She, with sweet words and false enticing smiles,Infused love among the dainties set,
And with empoison'd cups our souls beguiles,And made each knight himself and God forget.
In Cæsars civill warres, Lutius Domitius taken in Prussia, having empoysoned himselfe, did afterward rue and repent his deede.
