ENOBARBUS

They have dispatched with Pompey; he is gone.
The other three are sealing. Octavia weeps
To part from Rome. Caesar is sad, and Lepidus,
Since Pompeys feast, as Menas says, is troubled
With the greensickness.

Indeed, he plied them both with excellent praises.

Hoo! Hearts, tongues, figures, scribes, bards, poets, cannot

His love to Antony. But as for Caesar,
Kneel down, kneel down, and wonder.

CAESAR

You take from me a great part of myself;
25 Use me well in t.Sister, prove such a wife
As my thoughts make thee, and as my farthest bond
Shall pass on thy approof.Most noble Antony,
Let not the piece of virtue, which is set
Betwixt us as the cement of our love,
30 To keep it builded, be the ram to batter
The fortress of it. For better might we
Have loved without this mean, if on both parts
This be not cherished.

ANTONY

You shall not find,
35 Though you be therein curious, the least cause
For what you seem to fear. So the gods keep you
And make the hearts of Romans serve your ends.
We will here part.

Her tongue will not obey her heart, nor can
Her heart inform her tonguethe swans-down feather
That stands upon the swell at the full of tide
50 And neither way inclines.

ENOBARBUS

(aside toAGRIPPA) Will Caesar weep?

So is he, being a man.

AGRIPPA

(aside toENOBARBUS) Why, Enobarbus,
55 When Antony found Julius Caesar dead,
He cried almost to roaring, and he wept
When at Philippi he found Brutus slain.

PRIAPGA

ENOBARBUS

(aside toAGRIPPA) That year indeed he was troubled with a rheum.
What willingly he did confound he wailed,
60 Believe t, till I wept too.

You shall hear from me still. The time shall not
Outgo my thinking on you.
