1

V,2,2440

My lord, you told me you would tell the rest,
When weeping made you break the story off,...

2

V,2,2444

At that sad stop, my lord,
Where rude misgovern'd hands from windows' tops...

3

V,2,2463

Alack, poor Richard! where rode he the whilst?

4

V,2,2482

Here comes my son Aumerle.

5

V,2,2489

Welcome, my son: who are the violets now
That strew the green lap of the new come spring?

6

V,2,2509

What should you fear?
'Tis nothing but some bond, that he is enter'd into...

7

V,2,2519

What is the matter, my lord?

8

V,2,2524

Why, what is it, my lord?

9

V,2,2528

What is the matter?

10

V,2,2530

I will not peace. What is the matter, Aumerle.

11

V,2,2533

Thy life answer!

12

V,2,2536

Strike him, Aumerle. Poor boy, thou art amazed.
Hence, villain! never more come in my sight.

13

V,2,2539

Why, York, what wilt thou do?
Wilt thou not hide the trespass of thine own?...

14

V,2,2551

He shall be none;
We'll keep him here: then what is that to him?

15

V,2,2555

Hadst thou groan'd for him
As I have done, thou wouldst be more pitiful....

16

V,2,2566

After, Aumerle! mount thee upon his horse;
Spur post, and get before him to the king,...

17

V,3,2652

[Within] What ho, my liege! for God's sake,
let me in.

18

V,3,2655

A woman, and thy aunt, great king; 'tis I.
Speak with me, pity me, open the door....

19

V,3,2667

O king, believe not this hard-hearted man!
Love loving not itself none other can.

20

V,3,2671

Sweet York, be patient. Hear me, gentle liege.

21

V,3,2674

Not yet, I thee beseech:
For ever will I walk upon my knees,...

22

V,3,2682

Pleads he in earnest? look upon his face;
His eyes do drop no tears, his prayers are in jest;...

23

V,3,2694

Nay, do not say, 'stand up;'
Say, 'pardon' first, and afterwards 'stand up.'...

24

V,3,2703

Dost thou teach pardon pardon to destroy?
Ah, my sour husband, my hard-hearted lord,...

25

V,3,2713

I do not sue to stand;
Pardon is all the suit I have in hand.

26

V,3,2716

O happy vantage of a kneeling knee!
Yet am I sick for fear: speak it again;...

27

V,3,2722

A god on earth thou art.

28

V,3,2732

Come, my old son: I pray God make thee new.
