1

III,4,1863

Queen. What sport shall we devise here in this garden,
To drive away the heavy thought of care?

Lady. Madam, we'll play at bowls.


2

III,4,1866

Queen. 'Twill make me think the world is full of rubs,
And that my fortune rubs against the bias.

Lady. Madam, we'll dance.


3

III,4,1870

Queen. My legs can keep no measure in delight,
When my poor heart no measure keeps in grief:
Therefore, no dancing, girl; some other sport.

Lady. Madam, we'll tell tales.


4

III,4,1872

Queen. Of sorrow or of joy?

Lady. Of either, madam.


5

III,4,1880

Queen. Of neither, girl:
For of joy, being altogether wanting,
It doth remember me the more of sorrow;
Or if of grief, being altogether had,
It adds more sorrow to my want of joy:
For what I have I need not to repeat;
And what I want it boots not to complain.

Lady. Madam, I'll sing.


6

III,4,1883

Queen. 'Tis well that thou hast cause
But thou shouldst please me better, wouldst thou weep.

Lady. I could weep, madam, would it do you good.
