The moated grange at ST. LUKE's.
Enter MARIANA and a Boy
Take, O, take those lips away,
That so sweetly were forsworn;
And those eyes, the break of day,
that do mislead the morn:
But my kisses bring again, bring again;
Seals of love, but sealed in vain, sealed
Break off thy song, and haste thee quick away:
Here comes a man of comfort, whose advice
still'd my brawling discontent.
Enter DUKE VINCENTIO disguised as before
I cry you mercy, sir; and well could wish
You had not found me here so musical:
Let me excuse me, and
believe me so,
My mirth it much displeased, but pleased my woe.
'Tis good; though music oft hath such a charm
To make bad good, and good provoke to harm.
I pray, you,
tell me, hath any body inquired
for me here to-day? much upon this time have
I promised here to meet.
You have not been inquired after:
I have sat here all day.
I do constantly believe you. The time is come even
now. I shall crave your forbearance a little: may
will call upon you anon, for some advantage to yourself.
I am always bound to you.
Very well met, and well come.
What is the news from this good deputy?
He hath a garden circummured with brick,
Whose western side is with a vineyard back'd;
And to that
vineyard is a planched gate,
That makes his opening with this bigger key:
This other doth command a
Which from the vineyard to the garden leads;
There have I made my promise
Upon the heavy
middle of the night
To call upon him.
