Stricken Deer

I was a striken deer that left the herd long since.
Cowper.—The Task, Book III. Line 108.

Why, let the stricken deer go weep,
The hart ungalled play:
For some must watch, while some must sleep;
So runs the world away.
Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act III. Scene 2. (To Horatio when the King has fled from the Play.)
