Rome. A room in Martius house.

VOLUMNIA

I pray you, daughter, sing; or express yourself in a
more comfortable sort: if my son were my husband, I
should freelier rejoice in that absence wherein he
won honour than in the embracements of his bed where
5 he would show most love. When yet he was but
tender-bodied and the only son of my womb, when
youth with comeliness plucked all gaze his way, when
for a day of kings entreaties a mother should not
sell him an hour from her beholding, I, considering
10 how honour would become such a person. that it was
no better than picture-like to hang by the wall, if
renown made it not stir, was pleased to let him seek
danger where he was like to find fame. To a cruel
war I sent him; from whence he returned, his brows
15 bound with oak. I tell thee, daughter, I sprang not
more in joy at first hearing he was a man-child
than now in first seeing he had proved himself a
man.

20 Then his good report should have been my son; I
therein would have found issue. Hear me profess
sincerely: had I a dozen sons, each in my love
alike and none less dear than thine and my good
Martius, I had rather had eleven die nobly for their
25 country than one voluptuously surfeit out of action.

Methinks I see him stamp thus, and call thus:

Though you were born in Rome: his bloody brow
35 With his maild hand then wiping, forth he goes,
Like to a harvest-man thats taskd to mow

At Grecian sword, contemning. Tell Valeria,
