As they were living; think, you see them great,
And follow'd with the general throng, and sweat,
Of thousand friends ; then, in a moment, see
How soon this mightiness meets misery!
And, if you can be merry then, I'll say,
A man may weep upon his wedding day.

ACT I. SCENE I.

London. An Antichamber in the Palace.

Enter the Duke of Norfolk, at one door; at the

other, the Duke of BUCKINGHAM, and the Lord ABERGAVENNY. Buckingham. Good morrow, and well met. How

have you done, Since last we saw in France ? Nor.

Buck.

An untimely ague
Stay'd me a prisoner in my chamber, when
Those suns of glory, those two lights of men,
Met in the vale of Arde.
Nor.

'Twixt Guynes and Arde :
I was then present, saw them salute on horseback;
Beheld them, when they lighted, how they clung
In their embracement, as they grew together ;
Which had they, what four thron'd ones could have

weigh'd Such a compounded one?
