Modern Text


'Tis known before. Our preparation stands
In expectation of them. O dear father,
It is thy business that I go about.
25Therefore great France
My mourning and importuned tears hath pitied.
No blown ambition doth our arms incite,
But love—dear love!—and our aged father’s right.
Soon may I hear and see him.


We already knew that. Our forces are ready for them. Oh, father, I’m taking care of your business. That’s why the King of France listened to my pleas and tears. We’re not invading England out of ambition or greed, but out of love—dear love!—and my father’s right to his kingdom. I hope I see him and hear him again soon.
They all exit.
