JSnter King Henry. Prince of Wales, emd Lords.

K. Hot. Lords, give us leave; the Prinua of

Wales and I

Moat have some conference; Bat be nrar al

For wo shaU preaontly have need of you —

[Exnml Loidfe.
I know not whether God will have it so.
For some displeasing service I have done.
That, in his secret iTiium. out of my blood
He'll breed revengement and a scourge for me ;
But thou dost, ill thy passages of life,
Make uie believe.— that thou art only mark'd
For tite hot vengeance and the rod of heaven.
To punish my mis-ireatUiigs. Tell me else.
Could such inordinate, and low demrea,
Sudi poor, sucli bare, such lewd, such mean at-
Such barren pleasores, rude society.
As thou art maicird witlial. and craned to.
Accompany the greatnet<s of thy bloud.
Aud huki their level with thy prinnely lieart?
P. Hen. So please your lutgesiy, 1 would, I
Quit all offences with as clear excuae,
As well us, I Mill doubilt*t, I can purge
Myitelf uf many I am cliurg'd wiUial :
Yet such exieiiuatitiu lei me beg;
As, in reproof of many tales devis'd.—
WhicJi (ill the ear of greatness needs must liear^-
By smiling pick-thanks and haw newsmonKera,
I may. fi>r aome Uiiuxs true, wherein my youtb
Hath faulty wunder'd aial irregular.
Find pardon on my true submission.
K. Htn. G(mI pardon thee I— yet let me won-
der, Harry,
At thy afEB&'ious. which do bold a wing
Quite from the fliicht of all thy ancestors.
'Fhy place in council thou hast rudely lost,
Whtth by thy younger brother is supplied ;
And art almoat an alien to the liearu
Of all tUe court uiid princes of my blood ;
I'he hope and expectauon of ihy time
fs ruiu'd ; and tlie soul of every man
Prophetically does foretlunk tljy lalL
Had I so laviah of my presence been.
So conimon-hackney'd in the eyes or men.
So stale and cheap to vulgar company ;
Opinion, that did help me lo the crown,
md still kept loyul to possession;
And lea me in reputeless banishroeot,
A fellow of ncAmark. nor hkelihood.
By being seldom seen, I oould not stir.
But, like a comet, I was wonder'd at ;
That men wouUl tell their cliiUlren. 'Prig i$ke;
Others would say.- Wken t WMck it DolimM»
And then I stole all courtenr fnan heaven.
And dress'd myself in such humility.
That I did pluck allegiance from men^ hearts.
Loud ahouu and SHiutatioiis from their luouilia,
Even in the presence of tlie crowned king.
Thus did 1 kt^ep my person fresh, and new ;
My presence, like a '••be pontificail.
Ne'er seen, but wouder'd at ; ami so my state,
^ieldom, but sumptuous, showed like a leiua;
And woo. by nireiiess. sucli solemnity
