As You Like It
Act II, Scene 6

Another part of the Forest of Arden.

  1. Enter Orlando and Adam.


1 - 2
  1. Dear master, I can go no further. O, I die for food! Here
  2. lie I down, and measure out my grave. Farewell, kind master.


3 - 15
  1. Why, how now, Adam? No greater heart in thee? Live a little,
  2. comfort a little, cheer thyself a little. If this uncouth
  3. forest yield any thing savage, I will either be food for it,
  4. or bring it for food to thee. Thy conceit is nearer death
  5. than thy powers. For my sake be comfortable, hold death a
  6. while at the arm’s end. I will here be with thee presently,
  7. and if I bring thee not something to eat, I will give thee
  8. leave to die; but if thou diest before I come, thou art a
  9. mocker of my labor. Well said, thou look’st cheerly, and
  10. I’ll be with thee quickly. Yet thou liest in the bleak air.
  11. Come, I will bear thee to some shelter, and thou shalt not
  12. die for lack of a dinner if there live any thing in this
  13. desert. Cheerly, good Adam!
  1. Exeunt.
