(Chiefly, that I might set it in my prayers)
What is your name?
Mir.

Miranda:-0, my father,
I have broke your hest to say so!
Fer.

Admir'd Miranda
Indeed, the top of admiration ; worth
What's dearest to the world! Full many a lady
I have ey'd with best regard ; and many a time
'The harmony of their tongues hath into bondage
Brought my too diligent ear: for several virtues
Have I lik'd several women; never any
With so full soul, but some defect in her
Did quarrel with the noblest grace she ow'd,
And put it to the foil: But you, O you,
So perfect, and so peerless, are created
Of every creature's beste
Nir.

I do not know
Date of my sex ; no woman's face remember,
Sare from my glass, mine own; nor have I seen
More that I may call men, than you, good friend,
And my dear father: how features are abroad,
I am skillless of; but, by my modesty,
(The jewel in my dower.) I would not wish
Any companion in the world but you ;
Xor tan imagination form a shape,
Beides yourself, to like of: But I prattle
Swarthing too wildly, and my father's precepts
Therein forget

I am, in my condition,
A prizace, Miranda ; I do think, a king ;
Il vouk, not so !) and would no more endure
This wooden slavery, than I would suffer
The flesh-fly blow my mouth.-Hear my soul speak ;-
The very instant that I saw you, did
My beart fly to your service; there resides,
To make me slave to it; and for your sake,
An I this patient log-

man

Do you love me?
Fer. O heaven, O earth, bear witness to this sound,
And crown what I profess with kind event,
II speak true: if hollowly, invert
What best is boded me, to mischief ! L,
Beyond all limit of what else i' the world,
Da love, prize, honour you.

I am a fool,
To weep at what I am glad of.
Pre

Fair encounter
Oftso most rare affections ! Heavens rain grace
Ca that which breeds between them!
Fer.

Wherefore weep you ?
Nir. At mine unworthiness, that dare not offer
What I desire to give; and much less take,
What I shall die to want : But this is trilling ;
And all the more it seeks to hide itself,
The bigger bulk it shews. Hence, bashful cunning!
And prompt me, plain and holy innocence !
In your wife, if you will marry me ;
If not, I'U die your maid ; to be your fellow
Ya may deny me; but I'll be your servant,
Whether you will or no.
Fer.

My mistress, dearest, And I thus humble ever.

My husband then ? Fa. Ay, with a heart as willing As bondage e'er of freedom : here's my hand. Wir. And mine, with my heart in't: And now fare

A thousand ! thousand !

[Exeunt Fer. and Mira.

SCENE II. Another part of the island. Enter Ste

phano and Trinculo: Caliban following with a bottle.

Ste. Tell not me ;-when the butt is out, we will drink water; not a drop before : therefore bear up, and board 'em : Servant-monster, drink to me.

Trin. Servant-monster? the folly of this island ! They say, there's but five upon this isle : we are three of them ; if the other two be brain d like us, the state totters.

Ste. Drink, sertant-monster, when I bid thee; thy eyes are almost set in thy head.

Trin. Where should they be set else ? he were a brave monster indeed, if they were set in his tail.

Ste. My man-monster hath drowned his tongue in sack : for my part, the sea cannot drown me: I swam, ere I could recover the shore, five-and-thirty leagues, off and on, by this light.-Thou shalt be my lieutenant, monster, or my standard.

Trin. Your lieutenant, if you list; he's no standard.
Ste. We'll not run, monsieur monster.

Trin. Nor go neither : but you'll lie, like dogs ; and yet say nothing neither.

Ste. Moon-calf, speak once in thy life, if thou beest a good moon-calf.

Cal. How does thy honour? Let me lick thy shoe : I'll not serve him, he is not valiant.

Trin. Thou liest, most ignorant monster ; I am in case to justle a constable : Why, thou deboshed fish thou, was there ever an a coward, that hath drunk so much sack as I to-day? Wilt thou tell a monstrous lie, being but half a fish, and half a monster?

Cal. Lo, how he mocks me! wilt thou let him, my lord ?

Trin. Lord, quoth he !--that a monster should be such a natural !

Cal. Lo, lo, again! bite him to death, I pr’ythee.

Ste. Trinculo, keep a good tongue in your head ; if you prove a mutineer, the next tree-The poor monster's my subject, and he shall not suffer indignity

Cal. I thank my noble lord. Wilt thou be pleas'd To hearken once again the suit I made thee?

Ste, Marry will I: kneel and repeat it; I will stand, and so shall Trinculo.

Enter Ariel, invisible.
Cal. As I told thee
Before, I am subject to a tyrant ;
A sorcerer, that by his cunning hath
Cheated me of this island.
Ari.

Thou liest.
Cal. Thou liest, thou jesting monkey, thou ;
I would, my valiant master would destroy thee :
I do not lie.

Ste. Trinculo, if you trouble him any more in his tale, by this hand, I will supplant some of your teeth.

Trin. Why, I said nothing.

Ste, Mum then, and no more.-[To Caliban.] Proceed.

Cal. I say, by sorcery he got this isle;
From me he got it. If thy greatness will
Revenge it on him-for, I know, thou darist;
But this thing dare not.

Ste. That's most certain.

Cal. Thou shalt be lord of it, and I'll serve thee.

[Ariel plays the tune on a tabor and pipe. Ste. How now shall this be compassed? Canst thou Ste. What is this same? bring me to the party?

Trin. This is the tune of our catch, play'd by the Cal. Yea, yea, my lord ; I'll yield him thee asleep, picture of No-body. Where thou may'st knock a nail into his head.

Ceres, most bounteous lady, thy rich leas Of wheat, rye, barley, vetches, oats, and pease; Thy turfy mountains, where live nibbling sheep, And fiat meads thatch'd with stover, them to keep; Thy banks with peonied and lilied brims, Which spongy April at thy hest betrims, To make cold nymphs chaste crowns; and thy broom

groves, Whose shadow the dismissed bachelor loves, Being lass-lorn; thy pole-clipt vineyard; And thy sea-marge, steril, and rocky-hard, Where thou thyself dost air: The queen o' the sky, Whose watery arch, and messenger, am I, Bids thee kave these; and with her sovereign grace, Here on this grass-plot, in this very place, To come and sport: her peacocks fly amain; Approach, rich Ceres, her to entertain.

Enter Ceres.

Cer. Hail, many-colour'd messenger, that ne'er
Dost disobey the wife of Jupiter ;
Who, with thy saffion wings, upon my flowers
Diffusest honey-drops, refreshing showers;
And with each end of thy blue bow dost crown
My bosky acres, and my unshrubb'd down,
Rich scarf to my proud earth ; Why hath thy queen
Summond me hither, to this short-grass'd green?

Iris. A contract of true love to celebrate;
And some donation fively to estate
On the bless u lovers.
Cer.

Tell me, heavenly bow,
If Venus, or her son, as thou dost know,
Do now attend the queen ? since they did plot
The means, that dusky Dis my daughter got,
Her and her blind boy's scandal'd company
I have forsworn.

Iris. or her society
Be not afraid ; I met her deity
Cutting the clouds towards Paphos; and her son
Dovedrawn with her: here thought they to have done
Some wanton charm upon this man and maid,
Whose vows are, that no bed-rite shall be paid
Till Hymen's torch be lighted : but io vain;
Mars's hot minion is return'd again;
Her waspish-headed son has broke his arrows,
Swears he will shoot no more, but play with sparow
And be a boy right out.

Highest queen of state, Great Juno comes; I know her by her gait.

To bless this twain, that they may prosperous be,
And honour'd in their issue.

Barns, and garners never empty;

Plants, with goodly burden bowing;

In the very end of harvest !
Scarcity, and want, shall shun you;

Ceres' blessing so is on you.

Harmonious charmingly: May I be bold
To think these spirits?
