Act 3 - Scene 11
Alexandria. CLEOPATRA's palace.
Enter MARK ANTONY with Attendants
Hark! the land bids me tread no more upon't;
It is ashamed to bear me! Friends, come hither:
I am so
lated in the world, that I
Have lost my way for ever: I have a ship
Laden with gold; take that, divide it; fly,
make your peace with Caesar.
Fly! not we.
I have fled myself; and have instructed cowards
To run and show their shoulders. Friends, be gone;
myself resolved upon a course
Which has no need of you; be gone:
My treasure's in the harbour, take it.
I follow'd that I blush to look upon:
My very hairs do mutiny; for the white
Reprove the brown for rashness,
and they them
For fear and doting. Friends, be gone: you shall
Have letters from me to some friends that
Sweep your way for you. Pray you, look not sad,
Nor make replies of loathness: take the hint
my despair proclaims; let that be left
Which leaves itself: to the sea-side straightway:
I will possess you of
that ship and treasure.
Leave me, I pray, a little: pray you now:
Nay, do so; for, indeed, I have lost command,
I pray you: I'll see you by and by.
Enter CLEOPATRA led by CHARMIAN and IRAS; EROS following
Nay, gentle madam, to him, comfort him.
Do, most dear queen.
Do! why: what else?
Let me sit down. O Juno!
No, no, no, no, no.
See you here, sir?
O fie, fie, fie!
