That death from Prospero, and not this from you.
Dor. Ay, now I find why I was sent away, That you might have my sister's company.
Hip. Dorinda, kill me not with your unkindness:
Ferd. We all accuse
Mir. O, blest word!
Dor. Nor I, heaven knows, but my lippolito.
Hip. I never knew I loved so much, before
Ferd. 'Twas happy, then, we had this little trial ;
in my defence; My father sent me hither, to attend The wounded stranger.
Dor. And Hippolito Sent me to beg the life of Ferdinand. Ferd. From such small errors, left at first unheed
ed, Have often sprung sad accidents in love.But
see, our fathers and our friends are come To mix their joys with ours. Enter PROSPERO, ALONZO, ANTONIO, and Gon
Alon. to Prosp. Let it no more be thought of;
But could not have complained.
Prosp. Sir, I am glad
Dor. O, wonder!
Hip. O, brave new world,
Alon, to Ferd. Now all the blessings Of a glad father compass thee about, And make thee happy in thy beauteous choice. Gonz. I've inward wept, or should have spoken
Anto. Though penitence,
Prosp. All past crimes
Alon. And, that I may not be behind in justice, To this young prince I render back his dukedom, And as the duke of Mantua thus salute him.
Hip. What is it that you render back? methinks You give me nothing.
Prosp. You are to be lord
Hip. And shall these people be all men and women?
lord. Hip. Why, then, I'll live no longer in a prison, But have a whole cave to myself hereafter.
Prosp. And, that your happiness may be complete, I give you my Dorinda for your wife:
She shall be yours for ever, when the priest
her? Prosp. By saying holy words, you shall be joined In marriage to each other.
Dor. I warrant you, those holy words are charms: My father means to conjure us together. Prosp. My Ariel told me, when last night you quarrelled,
[To his daughters. You said you would for ever part your beds. But what you threatened in your anger, heaven Has turned to prophecy; For you, Miranda, must with Ferdinand, And you,
Dorinda, with Hippolito, Lie in one bed hereafter.
Alon. And heaven make Those beds still fruitful in producing children, To bless their parents' youth, and grandsires' age.
Mir. to Dor. If children come by lying in a bed, I wonder you and I had none between us.
Dor. Sister, it was our fault; we meant, like fools,
Hip. I am o'er-joyed,
Ferd. [Aside to him.] Hippolito! You yet
Hip. Pray teach me quickly, How men and women, in your world, make love; I shall soon learn, I warrant you.
Enter ARIEL, driving in STEPHANO, TRINCALO, MUSTACHO, VENTOSO, CALIBAN, and SYCORAX.
. Prosp. Why that's my dainty Ariel; I shall miss
thee, But yet thou shalt have freedom.
Gonz. O look, sir, look! The master and the sail
The boatswain too--my prophecy is out,
Alon. Now, blasphemy; what, not one oath ashore! Hast thou no mouth by land? Why starest thou so?
[To TRINCALO. Trinc. What! more dukes yet? I must resign my
dukedom; But 'tis no matter, I was almost starved in't.
Must. Here's nothing but wild sallads, without oil, or vinegar.
Steph. The duke and prince alive!'Would I had
Our gallant ship again, and were her master:
Vent. And I my viceroyship.
Trinc. I shall need no hangman; for I shall even hang myself, now my friend Butt has shed his last drop of life. Poor Butt is quite departed.
Anto. They talk like madmen.
Alon. This news is wonderful.
Gonz. But pray, sir, what are those mis-shapen
creatures? Prosp. Their mother was a witch; and one so
strong, She would controul the moon, make flows and ebbs, And deal in her command without her power.
Syc. O Setebos! these be brave spirits indeed.
Prosp. Go, sirrah, to my cell, and, as you hope For pardon, trim it up.
[To CALIB. Calib. Most carefully. I will be wise hereafter. What a dull fool was I, to take those drunkards For gods, when such as these were in the world?
Prosp. Sir, I invite your highness and your train To my poor cave this night; a part of which I will employ, in telling you my story.
Alon. No doubt it must be strangely taking, sir. Prosp. When the morn draws, I'll bring you to
your ship, And promise you calm seas, and happy gales. My Ariel, that's thy charge: Then to the elements Be free, and fare thee well!
Ariel. I'll do it, master.
Prosp. Now, to make amends For the rough treatment you have found to-day, l'll entertain you with my magic art; I'll, by my power, transform this place, and call Up those, that shall make good my promise to you.
SCENE II.-Changes to the Rocks, with the arch
of Rocks, and calm Sea. Music playing on the Rocks.
Prosp. Neptune, and your fair Amphitrite, rise; Oceanus, with your Tethys too, appear; All ye sea-gods, and goddesses, appear! Come, all ye Tritons; all ye Nereids, come, And teach your saucy element to obey :
