Two Noble Kinsmen
Epilogue1 - 18
- I would now ask ye how ye like the play,
- But as it is with schoolboys, cannot say;
- I am cruel fearful. Pray yet stay a while,
- And let me look upon ye. No man smile?
- Then it goes hard, I see. He that has
- Lov’d a young handsome wench then, show his face—
- ’Tis strange if none be here—and if he will
- Against his conscience, let him hiss, and kill
- Our market. ’Tis in vain, I see, to stay ye;
- Have at the worst can come, then! Now what say ye?
- And yet mistake me not: I am not bold,
- We have no such cause. If the tale we have told
- (For ’tis no other) any way content ye
- (For to that honest purpose it was meant ye),
- We have our end; and ye shall have ere long
- I dare say many a better, to prolong
- Your old loves to us. We, and all our might,
- Rest at your service. Gentlemen, good night.
