Gloucestershire. SHALLOW'S orchard.
Enter FALSTAFF, SHALLOW, SILENCE, DAVY, BARDOLPH, and the Page
Nay, you shall see my orchard, where, in an arbour,
we will eat a last year's pippin of my own graffing,
a dish of caraways, and so forth: come,
cousin Silence: and then to bed.
'Fore God, you have here a goodly dwelling and a rich.
Barren, barren, barren; beggars all, beggars all,
Sir John: marry, good air. Spread, Davy; spread,
This Davy serves you for good uses; he is your
serving-man and your husband.
A good varlet, a good varlet, a very good varlet,
Sir John: by the mass, I have drunk too much sack
supper: a good varlet. Now sit down, now sit
down: come, cousin.
Ah, sirrah! quoth-a, we shall
Do nothing but eat, and make good cheer,
And praise God for the merry year;
When flesh is cheap and females dear,
And lusty lads roam here and
And ever among so merrily.
There's a merry heart! Good Master Silence, I'll
give you a health for that anon.
Give Master Bardolph some wine, Davy.
Sweet sir, sit; I'll be with you anon. most sweet
sir, sit. Master page, good master page, sit.
you want in meat, we'll have in drink:
but you must bear; the heart's all.
Be merry, Master Bardolph; and, my little soldier
there, be merry.
