Seite 82 - Edw. Something still buzzeth in mine ears, And tells me, if I sleep, I never wake : This fear is that which makes me tremble thus; And therefore tell me, wherefore art thou come ? Light. To rid thee of thy life. — Matrevis, come ! Enter MATREVIS and GURNEY. K. Edw. I am too weak and feeble to resist. — Assist me, sweet God, and receive my soul ! Light.
Seite 85 - And, seeing there was no place to mount up higher, Why should I grieve at my declining fall? — Farewell, fair queen; weep not for Mortimer, That scorns the world, and, as a traveller, Goes to discover countries yet unknown.

Seite 76 - ... tis good he die : But read it thus, and that's another sense ; Edwardum occidere nolite, timere bonum est, Kill not the king, 'tis good to fear the worst. Unpointed as it is, thus shall it go. That, being dead, if it chance to be found, Matrevis and the rest may bear the blame, And we be quit that caus'd it to be done.
Seite 81 - I see my tragedy written in thy brows. Yet stay a while; forbear thy bloody hand, And let me see the stroke before it comes, That even then when I shall lose my life, My mind may be more steadfast on my God.
