Two Noble Kinsmen (Quarto, 1634)

Scæna 5.
Enter the Queenes with the Hearses of their
Knightes, in a Funerall Solempnity, &c.
Vrnes, aud odours, bring away,
Vapours, sighes, darken the day;
Our dole more deadly lookes than dying
Balmes, and Gummes, and heavy cheeres,
Sacred vials fill'd with teares,
And clamors through the wild ayre flying.
Come all sad, and solempne Showes,
625That are quick-eyd pleasures foes;
We convent nought else but woes.
We convent, &c.
3. Qu. This funeral path, brings to your housholds grave:
Ioy ceaze on you againe: peace sleepe with him.
2. Qu. And this to yours.
6301. Qu. Yours this way: Heavens lend
A thousand differing waies, to one sure end.
3. Qu. This world's a Citty full of straying Streetes,
And Death's the market place, where each one meetes.
Exeunt severally.
