From the text (three examples; the weather, the hawk, and the horses)

Thou seest the heavens, as troubled with man’s act, Threatens his bloody stage. By th' clock ’tis day, And yet dark night strangles the travelling lamp. Is ’t night’s predominance or the day’s shame That darkness does the face of Earth entomb When living light should kiss it? On Tuesday last,

A falcon, tow'ring in her pride of place, Was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed.
