19 FIT Most truly limn'd, and living in your face,.. to. 3' <I Be truly welcome hither. I'm the Duke, That loy'd your father. The residue of your fortune: Go to my cave and tell me. Good old
man, Thou art right welcome, as thy master is; Support him by the arm; give me your hand, And let me all your fortunes, understand. (Exeunt!
But were I not, the better part made mercy,
Within this twelvemonth; or turn thou no more
Oli. Oh, that your Highness knew my heart in this: I never lov'd my brother in my life.
Duke. More villain thou. Well, put him out of doors; And let my officers of such a nature Make an extent upon his house and lands : Do this expediently, and turn him going. [Exeunti. SCENE changes to the Forest.
Enter Orlando. Orla.
And thou thrice. crowned Queen of nightfutvey, With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above,
Thy huntress' name that my full life doth sway. O Rofalind! these trees shall be
my books, And in their barks my thoughts I'll character;. That every eye, which in this
forest looks, Shall see thy virtue witness'd every where, Run, run, Orlando, carve, on every tree, The fair, the chaste, and unexpressive she. [Exit.
Enter Corin and Clown.. Car. And how like you this shepherd's life, Mr. Toucha
Clo. Truly, shepherd, in respect of itfelf, it is a good life; but in respect that it is a shepherd's life, it is naught. In respect that it is folitary, I like it very well; but in respect that it is private, it is a very vile life. Now in . respect it is in the fields, it pleaseth me well; but in re. fpect it is not in the court, it is tedious. As it is a spare life, look you, it fits my humour well; but as there is no more plenty in it, it goes much against my at tiach. Haft any philofophy in thee, shepherd.
Cor. No more, but that I know, the more one fickens: the worse at ease he is : And that he, that wants money, means, and content, is without three good friends. That the property of rain is to wet, and fire to burn: That; good pasture makes fat theep; and that a great èause of the night, is lack of the fun: That he, that hash, learned no wit by nature nor art; may complain of good: breeding, or comes of a very dull kindred.
Clo. Such a one is a natural philofopher.. Want ever in: court, shepherd
Cor. No, truly
Clo. Truly, thou art damn’d, like an ill-roasted eggs all on one side.
Cor. For not being at court? your reason.
Clo, Why, if thou never wast at court, thou never. faw'it good manners, ; if thou never faw'st good manners, then thy manners must be wicked; and. wickedness is fin, and fin is damnation: Thou art in a parlous flate, thep. hterd.
Cor. Not a whit, Touchstone: Those, that are good manners at the court, are as ridiculous in the country, as the behaviour of the country is most mockable at the
You told me, you falutè not at the court, but you kiss your hands; that courtesy would be uncleanly, if courtiers were shepherds.
Clo. Instance, briefly; come, instance.
Cor. Why, we are still handling our ewes; and their fels, you know, are greasy.
Clo. Why, do not your courtiers hands sweat ? and is. not the grease of a mutton as wholsome as the sweat of a. man? thallow, shallow;--a better instance, I say: Come.
Cor. Besides, our hands are hard.
Clo. Your lips will feel them the sooner. Shallow again: a more founder instance, come..
Cor. And they are often tarr'd over with the surgery of our sheep; and would you have us kiss tar? the courtie,'s hands are perfumed with civet.
Clo. Moft shallow man! thou worms-meat, in refpect of a good piece of flesh, indeed! learn of the wise and perpend; civit is of a baser birth than tar; athe very uncleanly Aux of a cat. Mend the infance, shepherd.
Cor. You have too courtly a wit for me; I'H reft.
Clo. Wilt thou reft damn'd: God help thee, hallow man; God make incision in thee, thou art raw. I'
Cor. Sir, I am a true labourer, I earn that I eat; get that I wear; owe no man hate, envý no man's happiness ; glad of other men's good, content with my harm; and the greatest of my pride is, to see my ewes graze, and my lambs suck.
Clo, That is another simple fin in you, to bring the ewes and the rams together; and to offer to get your Jiving by the copulation of cattle; to be a bawd 10-a. bell-weather; and to betray a fhe-lamb of a twelvemonth to a crooked-pated old cuckoldly ram, out of all reasonable match, If thou be't not damn'd for this, the devil himself will have no lhepherds ;: I cannot see else how thou should't 'cape.
Cor. Here comes young Mr. Ganymed, my new mif tress's brother.
Enter Rosalind, with a papers
No jewel is like Rofalind.
Cló. I'll rhime you fo, eight years together ; dinners, and suppers, and sleeping hours excepted: It is the right butter-women's rank to market.
Rof. Qut, fool!

Rof.- I'll graff it with you, and then I shall graff it with a medler's then it will be the earliest fruit i' th country: for you it be rottenere you be half ripe, and that's the right virtue of the medler.
Clo. You have said; but whether wisely or no, let the foreit judge.

Buckles in his sum of age ; (14) If a bart dotb lack a bind, &c.] The poet, in arraigning this species of versification, seems not only to satirize the mode, that so much prevail'd in his time, of writing fonnets and madrigals; but tacitly to fneer the levity of Dr. Thomas Lodge, a grave physician in Queen Elizabetb's reign, who was very fertile of paftoral fongs; and who wrote a whole book of poems in the praise of his mistress, whom he calls Rosalindo
