Lock up my doors; and when you hear the drum.
I will go before, sir.Mistress, look out at window, for all this: There will come a Christian by, Will be worth a Jewess' eye. [Exit Laun. Shy. What says that fool of Hagar's offspring,
Jes. His words were, Farewell, mistress; nothing else.
Shy. The patch is kind enough; but a huge feeder,
Snail-slow in profit, and he sleeps by day
More than the wild cat: drones hive not with
Therefore I part with him; and part with him
Do as I bid you;
Shut doors after you. Fast bind, fast find;
Jes. Farewell; and if my fortune be not cross'd, I have a father, you a daughter lost.
Enter GRATIANO and SALARINO masked.
Gra. This is the pent-house, under which Lo
Desired us to make stand.
His hour is almost past.
Gra. And it is marvel he out-dwells his hour, For lovers ever run before the clock.
Salar. O, ten times faster Venus' pigeons fly
Gra. That ever holds. Who riseth from a feast,
The scarfed bark 1 puts from her native bay,
The vessel decorated with flags.
Salar. Here comes Lorenzo :-more of this here
Lor. Sweet friends, your patience for my long abode;
Not I, but my affairs have made you wait.
When you shall please to play the thieves for wives,
Enter JESSICA above, in boy's clothes.
Jes. Who are you? Tell me, for more certainty, Albeit. I'll swear that I do know your tongue.
Lor. Lorenzo, and thy love.
Jes. Lorenzo, certain; and my love, indeed; For who love I so much? And now who knows, But you, Lorenzo, whether I am yours?
Lor. Heaven, and thy thoughts, are witness that thou art.
Jes. Here, catch this casket; it is worth the pains.
I am glad 'tis night, you do not look on me,
Lor. Descend, for you must be my torch-bearer. Jes. What, must I hold a candle to my shames ? They in themselves, good sooth, are too too light.
