As you like it.

to set her before your eyes to morrow, humane as she is,

and without any danger.

Orl.
[2400]

Speak'st thou in sober meanings?

Ros.

By my life I do, which I tender deerly, though

I say I am a Magitian: Therefore put you in your best a­

ray, bid your friends: for if you will be married to mor­

row, you shall: and to Rosalind if you will.

Enter Siluius & Phebe.
[2405]

Looke, here comes a Louer of mine, and a louer of hers.

Phe. Youth, you haue done me much vngentlenesse, To shew the letter that I writ to you. Ros. I care not if I haue: it is my studie To seeme despightfull and vngentle to you:
[2410]
you are there followed by a faithful shepheard, Looke vpon him, loue him: he worships you.
Phe. Good shepheard, tell this youth what 'tis to loue Sil. It is to be all made of sighes and teares, And so am I for Phebe. Phe.
[2415]
And I for Ganimed.
Orl. And I for Rosalind. Ros. And I for no woman. Sil. It is to be all made of faith and seruice, And so am I for Phebe. Phe.
[2420]
And I for Ganimed.
Orl. And I for Rosalind. Ros. And I for no woman. Sil. It is to be all made of fantasie, All made of passion, and all made of wishes,
[2425]
All adoration, dutie, and obseruance, All humblenesse, all patience, and impatience, All puritie, all triall, all obseruance: And so am I for Phebe.
Phe. And so am I for Ganimed. Orl.
[2430]
And so am I for Rosalind.
Ros. And so am I for no woman. Phe. If this be so, why blame you me to loue you? Sil. If this be so, why blame you me to loue you? Orl. If this be so, why blame you me to loue you? Ros.
[2435]

Why do you speake too, Why blame you mee

to loue you.

Orl. To her, that is not heere, nor doth not heare. Ros.

Pray you no more of this, 'tis like the howling

of Irish Wolues against the Moone: I will helpe you

[2440]

if I can: I would loue you if I could: To morrow meet

me altogether: I wil marrie you, if euer I marrie Wo­

man, and Ile be married to morrow: I will satisfie you,

if euer I satisfi'd man, and you shall bee married to mor­

row. I wil content you, if what pleases you contents

[2445]

you, and you shal be married to orrow: As you loue

Rosalind meet, as you loue Phebe meet, and as I loue no

woman, Ile meet: so fare you wel: I haue left you com­

mands.

Sil. Ile not faile, if I liue. Phe.
[2450]
Nor I.
Orl. Nor I. Exeunt.
Scœna Tertia. [Act 5, Scene 3] Enter Clowne and Audrey. Clo.

To morrow is the ioyfull day Audrey, to morrow

will we be married.

Aud.

I do desire it with all my heart: and I hope it is

[2455]

no dishonest desire, to desire to be a woman of yͤ world?

Heere come two of the banish'd Dukes Pages.

Enter two Pages. 1. Pa.

Wel met honest Gentleman.

Clo.

By my troth well met: come, sit, sit, and a song.

2. Pa.

We are for you, sit i'th middle.

1. Pa.
[2460]

Shal we clap into't roundly, without hauking,

or spitting, or saying we are hoarse, which are the onely

prologues to a bad voice.

2. Pa.

I faith, y'faith, and both in a tune like two

gipsies on a horse.

Song.
[2465]
It was a Louer, and his lasse, With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, That o're the greene corne feild did passe, In the spring time, the onely pretty rang time. When Birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding.
[2470]
Sweet Louers loue the spring, And therefore take the present time. With a hey, & a ho, and a hey nonino, For loue is crowned with the prime. In spring time, &c.
[2475]
Betweene the acres of the Rie, With a hey, and a ho, & a hey nonino: These prettie Country folks would lie. In spring time, &c. This Carroll they began that houre,
[2480]
With a hey and a ho, & a hey nonino: How that a life was but a Flower, In spring time, &c.
Clo.

Truly yong Gentlemen, though there vvas no

great matter in the dittie, yet yͤ note was very vntunable

1. Pa.
[2485]

you are deceiu'd Sir, we kept time, we lost not

our time.

Clo.

By my troth yes: I count it but time lost to heare

such a foolish song. God buy you, and God mend your

voices. Come Audrie.

Exeunt.

[2490]
Dost thou beleeue Orlando, that the boy Can do all this that he hath promised?
Orl. I sometimes do beleeue, and somtimes do not, As those that feare they hope, and know they feare. Enter Rosalinde, Siluius, & Phebe. Ros. Patience once more, whiles our cōpact compact is vrg'd:
[2495]
You say, if I bring in your Rosalinde, You wil bestow her on Orlando heere?
Du. Se. That would I, had I kingdoms to giue with hir. Ros. And you say you wil haue her, when I bring hir? Orl. That would I, were I of all kingdomes King. Ros.
[2500]
You say, you'l marrie me, if I be willing.
Phe. That will I, should I die the houre after. Ros. But if you do refuse to marrie me, You'l giue your selfe to this most faithfull Shepheard. Phe. So is the bargaine. Ros.
[2505]
You say that you'l haue Phebe if she will.
Sil. Though to haue her and death, were both one thing. S Ros.
