Hold, take my sword. Theres husbandry in heaven;
5 Their candles are all out. Take thee that too.
A heavy summons lies like lead upon me,
And yet I would not sleep. Merciful powers,
Restrain in me the cursd thoughts that nature
Gives way to in repose.

A rndefi.


What, sir, not yet at rest? The kings a-bed.
He hath been in unusual pleasure, and
Sent forth great largess to your offices.
This diamond he greets your wife withal,
15 By the name of most kind hostess, and shut up
In measureless content.

Our will became the servant to defect,
Which else should free have wrought.

We would spend it in some words upon that business,
If you would grant the time.

Is this a dagger which I see before me,
The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee.
35 I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but
A dagger of the mind, a false creation,
Proceeding from the heat-oppressd brain?
40 I see thee yet, in form as palpable
As this which now I draw.
Thou marshallst me the way that I was going,
And such an instrument I was to use.
Mine eyes are made the fools o th other senses,
45 Or else worth all the rest. I see thee still,
And on thy blade and dudgeon gouts of blood,
Which was not so before. Theres no such thing.
It is the bloody business which informs
Thus to mine eyes. Now oer the one half-world
50 Nature seems dead, and wicked dreams abuse
The curtained sleep. Witchcraft celebrates
Pale Hecates offerings, and withered murder,
Alarumed by his sentinel, the wolf,
Whose howls his watch, thus with his stealthy pace,
55 With Tarquins ravishing strides, towards his design
Moves like a ghost. Thou sure and firm-set earth,
Hear not my steps, which way they walk, for fear
Thy very stones prate of my whereabout,
And take the present horror from the time,
60 Which now suits with it. Whiles I threat, he lives.
Words to the heat of deeds too cold breath gives.
