1. Act I, Scene 1

0 Alexandria. A room in CLEOPATRA’s palace.
2 Philo.
3       Nay, but this dotage of our general's
4       O'erflows the measure: those his goodly eyes,
5       That o'er the files and musters of the war
6       Have glow'd like plated Mars, now bend, now turn,
7       The office and devotion of their view
8       Upon a tawny front: his captain's heart,
9       Which in the scuffles of great fights hath burst
10       The buckles on his breast, reneges all temper,
11       And is become the bellows and the fan
12       To cool a gipsy's lust.
13       [Flourish. Enter ANTONY, CLEOPATRA, her Ladies,]
14       the Train, with Eunuchs fanning her]
15       Look, where they come:
16       Take but good note, and you shall see in him.
17       The triple pillar of the world transform'd
18       Into a strumpet's fool: behold and see.
19 Cleopatra.
20       If it be love indeed, tell me how much.
21 Antony.
22       There's beggary in the love that can be reckon'd.
23 Cleopatra.
24       I'll set a bourn how far to be beloved.
25 Antony.
26       Then must thou needs find out new heaven, new earth.
27 [Enter an Attendant]
28 Attendant.
29       News, my good lord, from Rome.
30 Antony.
31       Grates me: the sum.
32 Cleopatra.
33       Nay, hear them, Antony:
34       Fulvia perchance is angry; or, who knows
35       If the scarce-bearded Caesar have not sent
36       His powerful mandate to you, 'Do this, or this;
37       Take in that kingdom, and enfranchise that;
38       Perform 't, or else we damn thee.'
39 Antony.
40       How, my love!
41 Cleopatra.
42       Perchance! nay, and most like:
43       You must not stay here longer, your dismission
44       Is come from Caesar; therefore hear it, Antony.
45       Where's Fulvia's process? Caesar's I would say? both?
46       Call in the messengers. As I am Egypt's queen,
47       Thou blushest, Antony; and that blood of thine
48       Is Caesar's homager: else so thy cheek pays shame
49       When shrill-tongued Fulvia scolds. The messengers!
50 Antony.
51       Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
52       Of the ranged empire fall! Here is my space.
53       Kingdoms are clay: our dungy earth alike
54       Feeds beast as man: the nobleness of life
55       Is to do thus; when such a mutual pair
56       [Embracing]
57       And such a twain can do't, in which I bind,
58       On pain of punishment, the world to weet
59       We stand up peerless.
60 Cleopatra.
61       Excellent falsehood!
62       Why did he marry Fulvia, and not love her?
63       I'll seem the fool I am not; Antony
64       Will be himself.
65 Antony.
66       But stirr'd by Cleopatra.
67       Now, for the love of Love and her soft hours,
68       Let's not confound the time with conference harsh:
69       There's not a minute of our lives should stretch
70       Without some pleasure now. What sport tonight?
71 Cleopatra.
72       Hear the ambassadors.
73 Antony.
74       Fie, wrangling queen!
75       Whom every thing becomes, to chide, to laugh,
76       To weep; whose every passion fully strives
77       To make itself, in thee, fair and admired!
78       No messenger, but thine; and all alone
79       To-night we'll wander through the streets and note
80       The qualities of people. Come, my queen;
81       Last night you did desire it: speak not to us.
82       [Exeunt MARK ANTONY and CLEOPATRA with]
83       their train]
84 Demetrius.
85       Is Caesar with Antonius prized so slight?
86 Philo.
87       Sir, sometimes, when he is not Antony,
88       He comes too short of that great property
89       Which still should go with Antony.
90 Demetrius.
91       I am full sorry
92       That he approves the common liar, who
93       Thus speaks of him at Rome: but I will hope
94       Of better deeds to-morrow. Rest you happy!
95 [Exeunt]

2. Act I, Scene 2

0 The same. Another room.
1 [Enter CHARMIAN, IRAS, ALEXAS, and a Soothsayer]
2 Charmian.
3       Lord Alexas, sweet Alexas, most any thing Alexas,
4       almost most absolute Alexas, where's the soothsayer
5       that you praised so to the queen? O, that I knew
6       this husband, which, you say, must charge his horns
7       with garlands!
8 Alexas.
9       Soothsayer!
10 Soothsayer.
11       Your will?
12 Charmian.
13       Is this the man? Is't you, sir, that know things?
14 Soothsayer.
15       In nature's infinite book of secrecy
16       A little I can read.
17 Alexas.
18       Show him your hand.
20 Domitius Enobarus.
21       Bring in the banquet quickly; wine enough
22       Cleopatra's health to drink.
23 Charmian.
24       Good sir, give me good fortune.
25 Soothsayer.
26       I make not, but foresee.
27 Charmian.
28       Pray, then, foresee me one.
29 Soothsayer.
30       You shall be yet far fairer than you are.
31 Charmian.
32       He means in flesh.
33 Iras.
34       No, you shall paint when you are old.
35 Charmian.
36       Wrinkles forbid!
37 Alexas.
38       Vex not his prescience; be attentive.
39 Charmian.
40       Hush!
41 Soothsayer.
42       You shall be more beloving than beloved.
43 Charmian.
44       I had rather heat my liver with drinking.
45 Alexas.
46       Nay, hear him.
47 Charmian.
48       Good now, some excellent fortune! Let me be married
49       to three kings in a forenoon, and widow them all:
50       let me have a child at fifty, to whom Herod of Jewry
51       may do homage: find me to marry me with Octavius
52       Caesar, and companion me with my mistress.
53 Soothsayer.
54       You shall outlive the lady whom you serve.
55 Charmian.
56       O excellent! I love long life better than figs.
57 Soothsayer.
58       You have seen and proved a fairer former fortune
59       Than that which is to approach.
60 Charmian.
61       Then belike my children shall have no names:
62       prithee, how many boys and wenches must I have?
63 Soothsayer.
64       If every of your wishes had a womb.
65       And fertile every wish, a million.
66 Charmian.
67       Out, fool! I forgive thee for a witch.
68 Alexas.
69       You think none but your sheets are privy to your wishes.
70 Charmian.
71       Nay, come, tell Iras hers.
72 Alexas.
73       We'll know all our fortunes.
74 Domitius Enobarus.
75       Mine, and most of our fortunes, to-night, shall
76       bedrunk to bed.
77 Iras.
78       There's a palm presages chastity, if nothing else.
79 Charmian.
80       E'en as the o'erflowing Nilus presageth famine.
81 Iras.
82       Go, you wild bedfellow, you cannot soothsay.
83 Charmian.
84       Nay, if an oily palm be not a fruitful
85       prognostication, I cannot scratch mine ear. Prithee,
86       tell her but a worky-day fortune.
87 Soothsayer.
88       Your fortunes are alike.
89 Iras.
90       But how, but how? give me particulars.
91 Soothsayer.
92       I have said.
93 Iras.
94       Am I not an inch of fortune better than she?
95 Charmian.
96       Well, if you were but an inch of fortune better than
97       I, where would you choose it?
98 Iras.
99       Not in my husband's nose.
100 Charmian.
101       Our worser thoughts heavens mend! Alexas,—come,
102       his fortune, his fortune! O, let him marry a woman
103       that cannot go, sweet Isis, I beseech thee! and let
104       her die too, and give him a worse! and let worst
105       follow worse, till the worst of all follow him
106       laughing to his grave, fifty-fold a cuckold! Good
107       Isis, hear me this prayer, though thou deny me a
108       matter of more weight; good Isis, I beseech thee!
109 Iras.
110       Amen. Dear goddess, hear that prayer of the people!
111       for, as it is a heartbreaking to see a handsome man
112       loose-wived, so it is a deadly sorrow to behold a
113       foul knave uncuckolded: therefore, dear Isis, keep
114       decorum, and fortune him accordingly!
115 Charmian.
116       Amen.
117 Alexas.
118       Lo, now, if it lay in their hands to make me a
119       cuckold, they would make themselves whores, but
120       they'ld do't!
121 Domitius Enobarus.
122       Hush! here comes Antony.
123 Charmian.
124       Not he; the queen.
125 [Enter CLEOPATRA]
126 Cleopatra.
127       Saw you my lord?
128 Domitius Enobarus.
129       No, lady.
130 Cleopatra.
131       Was he not here?
132 Charmian.
133       No, madam.
134 Cleopatra.
135       He was disposed to mirth; but on the sudden
136       A Roman thought hath struck him. Enobarbus!
137 Domitius Enobarus.
138       Madam?
139 Cleopatra.
140       Seek him, and bring him hither.
141       Where's Alexas?
142 Alexas.
143       Here, at your service. My lord approaches.
144 Cleopatra.
145       We will not look upon him: go with us.
146 [Exeunt]
147 [Enter MARK ANTONY with a Messenger and Attendants]
148 Messenger.
149       Fulvia thy wife first came into the field.
150 Antony.
151       Against my brother Lucius?
152 Messenger.
153       Ay:
154       But soon that war had end, and the time's state
155       Made friends of them, joining their force 'gainst Caesar;
156       Whose better issue in the war, from Italy,
157       Upon the first encounter, drave them.
158 Antony.
159       Well, what worst?
160 Messenger.
161       The nature of bad news infects the teller.
162 Antony.
163       When it concerns the fool or coward. On:
164       Things that are past are done with me. 'Tis thus:
165       Who tells me true, though in his tale lie death,
166       I hear him as he flatter'd.
167 Messenger.
168       Labienus
169       This is stiff newshath, with his Parthian force,
170       Extended Asia from Euphrates;
171       His conquering banner shook from Syria
172       To Lydia and to Ionia; Whilst
173 Antony.
174       Antony, thou wouldst say,—
175 Messenger.
176       O, my lord!
177 Antony.
178       Speak to me home, mince not the general tongue:
179       Name Cleopatra as she is call'd in Rome;
180       Rail thou in Fulvia's phrase; and taunt my faults
181       With such full licence as both truth and malice
182       Have power to utter. O, then we bring forth weeds,
183       When our quick minds lie still; and our ills told us
184       Is as our earing. Fare thee well awhile.
185 Messenger.
186       At your noble pleasure.
187 [Exit]
188 Antony.
189       From Sicyon, ho, the news! Speak there!
190 First Attendant.
191       The man from Sicyon,—is there such an one?
192 Second Attendant.
193       He stays upon your will.
194 Antony.
195       Let him appear.
196       These strong Egyptian fetters I must break,
197       Or lose myself in dotage.
198       [Enter another Messenger]
199       What are you?
200 Second Messenger.
201       Fulvia thy wife is dead.
202 Antony.
203       Where died she?
204 Second Messenger.
205       In Sicyon:
206       Her length of sickness, with what else more serious
207       Importeth thee to know, this bears.
208 [Gives a letter]
209 Antony.
210       Forbear me.
211       [Exit Second Messenger]
212       There's a great spirit gone! Thus did I desire it:
213       What our contempt doth often hurl from us,
214       We wish it ours again; the present pleasure,
215       By revolution lowering, does become
216       The opposite of itself: she's good, being gone;
217       The hand could pluck her back that shoved her on.
218       I must from this enchanting queen break off:
219       Ten thousand harms, more than the ills I know,
220       My idleness doth hatch. How now! Enobarbus!
222 Domitius Enobarus.
223       What's your pleasure, sir?
224 Antony.
225       I must with haste from hence.
226 Domitius Enobarus.
227       Why, then, we kill all our women:
228       we see how mortal an unkindness is to them;
229       if they suffer our departure, death's the word.
230 Antony.
231       I must be gone.
232 Domitius Enobarus.
233       Under a compelling occasion, let women die; it were
234       pity to cast them away for nothing; though, between
235       them and a great cause, they should be esteemed
236       nothing. Cleopatra, catching but the least noise of
237       this, dies instantly; I have seen her die twenty
238       times upon far poorer moment: I do think there is
239       mettle in death, which commits some loving act upon
240       her, she hath such a celerity in dying.
241 Antony.
242       She is cunning past man's thought.
243 [Exit ALEXAS]
244 Domitius Enobarus.
245       Alack, sir, no; her passions are made of nothing but
246       the finest part of pure love: we cannot call her
247       winds and waters sighs and tears; they are greater
248       storms and tempests than almanacs can report: this
249       cannot be cunning in her; if it be, she makes a
250       shower of rain as well as Jove.
251 Antony.
252       Would I had never seen her.
253 Domitius Enobarus.
254       O, sir, you had then left unseen a wonderful piece
255       of work; which not to have been blest withal would
256       have discredited your travel.
257 Antony.
258       Fulvia is dead.
259 Domitius Enobarus.
260       Sir?
261 Antony.
262       Fulvia is dead.
263 Domitius Enobarus.
264       Fulvia!
265 Antony.
266       Dead.
267 Domitius Enobarus.
268       Why, sir, give the gods a thankful sacrifice. When
269       it pleaseth their deities to take the wife of a man
270       from him, it shows to man the tailors of the earth;
271       comforting therein, that when old robes are worn
272       out, there are members to make new. If there were
273       no more women but Fulvia, then had you indeed a cut,
274       and the case to be lamented: this grief is crowned
275       with consolation; your old smock brings forth a new
276       petticoat: and indeed the tears live in an onion
277       that should water this sorrow.
278 Antony.
279       The business she hath broached in the state
280       Cannot endure my absence.
281 Domitius Enobarus.
282       And the business you have broached here cannot be
283       without you; especially that of Cleopatra's, which
284       wholly depends on your abode.
285 Antony.
286       No more light answers. Let our officers
287       Have notice what we purpose. I shall break
288       The cause of our expedience to the queen,
289       And get her leave to part. For not alone
290       The death of Fulvia, with more urgent touches,
291       Do strongly speak to us; but the letters too
292       Of many our contriving friends in Rome
293       Petition us at home: Sextus Pompeius
294       Hath given the dare to Caesar, and commands
295       The empire of the sea: our slippery people,
296       Whose love is never link'd to the deserver
297       Till his deserts are past, begin to throw
298       Pompey the Great and all his dignities
299       Upon his son; who, high in name and power,
300       Higher than both in blood and life, stands up
301       For the main soldier: whose quality, going on,
302       The sides o' the world may danger: much is breeding,
303       Which, like the courser's hair, hath yet but life,
304       And not a serpent's poison. Say, our pleasure,
305       To such whose place is under us, requires
306       Our quick remove from hence.
307 Domitius Enobarus.
308       I shall do't.
309 [Exeunt]

3. Act I, Scene 3

0 The same. Another room.
2 Cleopatra.
3       Where is he?
4 Charmian.
5       I did not see him since.
6 Cleopatra.
7       See where he is, who's with him, what he does:
8       I did not send you: if you find him sad,
9       Say I am dancing; if in mirth, report
10       That I am sudden sick: quick, and return.
11 [Exit ALEXAS]
12 Charmian.
13       Madam, methinks, if you did love him dearly,
14       You do not hold the method to enforce
15       The like from him.
16 Cleopatra.
17       What should I do, I do not?
18 Charmian.
19       In each thing give him way, cross him nothing.
20 Cleopatra.
21       Thou teachest like a fool; the way to lose him.
22 Charmian.
23       Tempt him not so too far; I wish, forbear:
24       In time we hate that which we often fear.
25       But here comes Antony.
26 [Enter MARK ANTONY]
27 Cleopatra.
28       I am sick and sullen.
29 Antony.
30       I am sorry to give breathing to my purpose,—
31 Cleopatra.
32       Help me away, dear Charmian; I shall fall:
33       It cannot be thus long, the sides of nature
34       Will not sustain it.
35 Antony.
36       Now, my dearest queen,—
37 Cleopatra.
38       Pray you, stand further from me.
39 Antony.
40       What's the matter?
41 Cleopatra.
42       I know, by that same eye, there's some good news.
43       What says the married woman? You may go:
44       Would she had never given you leave to come!
45       Let her not say 'tis I that keep you here:
46       I have no power upon you; hers you are.
47 Antony.
48       The gods best know,—
49 Cleopatra.
50       O, never was there queen
51       So mightily betray'd! yet at the first
52       I saw the treasons planted.
53 Antony.
54       Cleopatra,—
55 Cleopatra.
56       Why should I think you can be mine and true,
57       Though you in swearing shake the throned gods,
58       Who have been false to Fulvia? Riotous madness,
59       To be entangled with those mouth-made vows,
60       Which break themselves in swearing!
61 Antony.
62       Most sweet queen,—
63 Cleopatra.
64       Nay, pray you, seek no colour for your going,
65       But bid farewell, and go: when you sued staying,
66       Then was the time for words: no going then;
67       Eternity was in our lips and eyes,
68       Bliss in our brows' bent; none our parts so poor,
69       But was a race of heaven: they are so still,
70       Or thou, the greatest soldier of the world,
71       Art turn'd the greatest liar.
72 Antony.
73       How now, lady!
74 Cleopatra.
75       I would I had thy inches; thou shouldst know
76       There were a heart in Egypt.
77 Antony.
78       Hear me, queen:
79       The strong necessity of time commands
80       Our services awhile; but my full heart
81       Remains in use with you. Our Italy
82       Shines o'er with civil swords: Sextus Pompeius
83       Makes his approaches to the port of Rome:
84       Equality of two domestic powers
85       Breed scrupulous faction: the hated, grown to strength,
86       Are newly grown to love: the condemn'd Pompey,
87       Rich in his father's honour, creeps apace,
88       Into the hearts of such as have not thrived
89       Upon the present state, whose numbers threaten;
90       And quietness, grown sick of rest, would purge
91       By any desperate change: my more particular,
92       And that which most with you should safe my going,
93       Is Fulvia's death.
94 Cleopatra.
95       Though age from folly could not give me freedom,
96       It does from childishness: can Fulvia die?
97 Antony.
98       She's dead, my queen:
99       Look here, and at thy sovereign leisure read
100       The garboils she awaked; at the last, best:
101       See when and where she died.
102 Cleopatra.
103       O most false love!
104       Where be the sacred vials thou shouldst fill
105       With sorrowful water? Now I see, I see,
106       In Fulvia's death, how mine received shall be.
107 Antony.
108       Quarrel no more, but be prepared to know
109       The purposes I bear; which are, or cease,
110       As you shall give the advice. By the fire
111       That quickens Nilus' slime, I go from hence
112       Thy soldier, servant; making peace or war
113       As thou affect'st.
114 Cleopatra.
115       Cut my lace, Charmian, come;
116       But let it be: I am quickly ill, and well,
117       So Antony loves.
118 Antony.
119       My precious queen, forbear;
120       And give true evidence to his love, which stands
121       An honourable trial.
122 Cleopatra.
123       So Fulvia told me.
124       I prithee, turn aside and weep for her,
125       Then bid adieu to me, and say the tears
126       Belong to Egypt: good now, play one scene
127       Of excellent dissembling; and let it look
128       Life perfect honour.
129 Antony.
130       You'll heat my blood: no more.
131 Cleopatra.
132       You can do better yet; but this is meetly.
133 Antony.
134       Now, by my sword,—
135 Cleopatra.
136       And target. Still he mends;
137       But this is not the best. Look, prithee, Charmian,
138       How this Herculean Roman does become
139       The carriage of his chafe.
140 Antony.
141       I'll leave you, lady.
142 Cleopatra.
143       Courteous lord, one word.
144       Sir, you and I must part, but that's not it:
145       Sir, you and I have loved, but there's not it;
146       That you know well: something it is I would,
147       O, my oblivion is a very Antony,
148       And I am all forgotten.
149 Antony.
150       But that your royalty
151       Holds idleness your subject, I should take you
152       For idleness itself.
153 Cleopatra.
154       'Tis sweating labour
155       To bear such idleness so near the heart
156       As Cleopatra this. But, sir, forgive me;
157       Since my becomings kill me, when they do not
158       Eye well to you: your honour calls you hence;
159       Therefore be deaf to my unpitied folly.
160       And all the gods go with you! upon your sword
161       Sit laurel victory! and smooth success
162       Be strew'd before your feet!
163 Antony.
164       Let us go. Come;
165       Our separation so abides, and flies,
166       That thou, residing here, go'st yet with me,
167       And I, hence fleeting, here remain with thee. Away!
168 [Exeunt]

4. Act I, Scene 4

0 Rome. OCTAVIUS CAESAR’s house.
1 [Enter OCTAVIUS CAESAR, reading a letter, LEPIDUS,] [p]and their Train]
2 Octavius.
3       You may see, Lepidus, and henceforth know,
4       It is not Caesar's natural vice to hate
5       Our great competitor: from Alexandria
6       This is the news: he fishes, drinks, and wastes
7       The lamps of night in revel; is not more man-like
8       Than Cleopatra; nor the queen of Ptolemy
9       More womanly than he; hardly gave audience, or
10       Vouchsafed to think he had partners: you shall find there
11       A man who is the abstract of all faults
12       That all men follow.
13 Lepidus.
14       I must not think there are
15       Evils enow to darken all his goodness:
16       His faults in him seem as the spots of heaven,
17       More fiery by night's blackness; hereditary,
18       Rather than purchased; what he cannot change,
19       Than what he chooses.
20 Octavius.
21       You are too indulgent. Let us grant, it is not
22       Amiss to tumble on the bed of Ptolemy;
23       To give a kingdom for a mirth; to sit
24       And keep the turn of tippling with a slave;
25       To reel the streets at noon, and stand the buffet
26       With knaves that smell of sweat: say this
27       becomes him,—
28       As his composure must be rare indeed
29       Whom these things cannot blemish,—yet must Antony
30       No way excuse his soils, when we do bear
31       So great weight in his lightness. If he fill'd
32       His vacancy with his voluptuousness,
33       Full surfeits, and the dryness of his bones,
34       Call on him for't: but to confound such time,
35       That drums him from his sport, and speaks as loud
36       As his own state and ours,—'tis to be chid
37       As we rate boys, who, being mature in knowledge,
38       Pawn their experience to their present pleasure,
39       And so rebel to judgment.
40 [Enter a Messenger]
41 Lepidus.
42       Here's more news.
43 Messenger.
44       Thy biddings have been done; and every hour,
45       Most noble Caesar, shalt thou have report
46       How 'tis abroad. Pompey is strong at sea;
47       And it appears he is beloved of those
48       That only have fear'd Caesar: to the ports
49       The discontents repair, and men's reports
50       Give him much wrong'd.
51 Octavius.
52       I should have known no less.
53       It hath been taught us from the primal state,
54       That he which is was wish'd until he were;
55       And the ebb'd man, ne'er loved till ne'er worth love,
56       Comes dear'd by being lack'd. This common body,
57       Like to a vagabond flag upon the stream,
58       Goes to and back, lackeying the varying tide,
59       To rot itself with motion.
60 Messenger.
61       Caesar, I bring thee word,
62       Menecrates and Menas, famous pirates,
63       Make the sea serve them, which they ear and wound
64       With keels of every kind: many hot inroads
65       They make in Italy; the borders maritime
66       Lack blood to think on't, and flush youth revolt:
67       No vessel can peep forth, but 'tis as soon
68       Taken as seen; for Pompey's name strikes more
69       Than could his war resisted.
70 Octavius.
71       Antony,
72       Leave thy lascivious wassails. When thou once
73       Wast beaten from Modena, where thou slew'st
74       Hirtius and Pansa, consuls, at thy heel
75       Did famine follow; whom thou fought'st against,
76       Though daintily brought up, with patience more
77       Than savages could suffer: thou didst drink
78       The stale of horses, and the gilded puddle
79       Which beasts would cough at: thy palate then did deign
80       The roughest berry on the rudest hedge;
81       Yea, like the stag, when snow the pasture sheets,
82       The barks of trees thou browsed'st; on the Alps
83       It is reported thou didst eat strange flesh,
84       Which some did die to look on: and all this
85       It wounds thine honour that I speak it now
86       Was borne so like a soldier, that thy cheek
87       So much as lank'd not.
88 Lepidus.
89       'Tis pity of him.
90 Octavius.
91       Let his shames quickly
92       Drive him to Rome: 'tis time we twain
93       Did show ourselves i' the field; and to that end
94       Assemble we immediate council: Pompey
95       Thrives in our idleness.
96 Lepidus.
97       To-morrow, Caesar,
98       I shall be furnish'd to inform you rightly
99       Both what by sea and land I can be able
100       To front this present time.
101 Octavius.
102       Till which encounter,
103       It is my business too. Farewell.
104 Lepidus.
105       Farewell, my lord: what you shall know meantime
106       Of stirs abroad, I shall beseech you, sir,
107       To let me be partaker.
108 Octavius.
109       Doubt not, sir;
110       I knew it for my bond.
111 [Exeunt]

5. Act I, Scene 5

0 Alexandria. CLEOPATRA’s palace.
2 Cleopatra.
3       Charmian!
4 Charmian.
5       Madam?
6 Cleopatra.
7       Ha, ha!
8       Give me to drink mandragora.
9 Charmian.
10       Why, madam?
11 Cleopatra.
12       That I might sleep out this great gap of time
13       My Antony is away.
14 Charmian.
15       You think of him too much.
16 Cleopatra.
17       O, 'tis treason!
18 Charmian.
19       Madam, I trust, not so.
20 Cleopatra.
21       Thou, eunuch Mardian!
22 Mardian.
23       What's your highness' pleasure?
24 Cleopatra.
25       Not now to hear thee sing; I take no pleasure
26       In aught an eunuch has: 'tis well for thee,
27       That, being unseminar'd, thy freer thoughts
28       May not fly forth of Egypt. Hast thou affections?
29 Mardian.
30       Yes, gracious madam.
31 Cleopatra.
32       Indeed!
33 Mardian.
34       Not in deed, madam; for I can do nothing
35       But what indeed is honest to be done:
36       Yet have I fierce affections, and think
37       What Venus did with Mars.
38 Cleopatra.
39       O Charmian,
40       Where think'st thou he is now? Stands he, or sits he?
41       Or does he walk? or is he on his horse?
42       O happy horse, to bear the weight of Antony!
43       Do bravely, horse! for wot'st thou whom thou movest?
44       The demi-Atlas of this earth, the arm
45       And burgonet of men. He's speaking now,
46       Or murmuring 'Where's my serpent of old Nile?'
47       For so he calls me: now I feed myself
48       With most delicious poison. Think on me,
49       That am with Phoebus' amorous pinches black,
50       And wrinkled deep in time? Broad-fronted Caesar,
51       When thou wast here above the ground, I was
52       A morsel for a monarch: and great Pompey
53       Would stand and make his eyes grow in my brow;
54       There would he anchor his aspect and die
55       With looking on his life.
57 Alexas.
58       Sovereign of Egypt, hail!
59 Cleopatra.
60       How much unlike art thou Mark Antony!
61       Yet, coming from him, that great medicine hath
62       With his tinct gilded thee.
63       How goes it with my brave Mark Antony?
64 Alexas.
65       Last thing he did, dear queen,
66       He kiss'd,—the last of many doubled kisses,—
67       This orient pearl. His speech sticks in my heart.
68 Cleopatra.
69       Mine ear must pluck it thence.
70 Alexas.
71       'Good friend,' quoth he,
72       'Say, the firm Roman to great Egypt sends
73       This treasure of an oyster; at whose foot,
74       To mend the petty present, I will piece
75       Her opulent throne with kingdoms; all the east,
76       Say thou, shall call her mistress.' So he nodded,
77       And soberly did mount an arm-gaunt steed,
78       Who neigh'd so high, that what I would have spoke
79       Was beastly dumb'd by him.
80 Cleopatra.
81       What, was he sad or merry?
82 Alexas.
83       Like to the time o' the year between the extremes
84       Of hot and cold, he was nor sad nor merry.
85 Cleopatra.
86       O well-divided disposition! Note him,
87       Note him good Charmian, 'tis the man; but note him:
88       He was not sad, for he would shine on those
89       That make their looks by his; he was not merry,
90       Which seem'd to tell them his remembrance lay
91       In Egypt with his joy; but between both:
92       O heavenly mingle! Be'st thou sad or merry,
93       The violence of either thee becomes,
94       So does it no man else. Met'st thou my posts?
95 Alexas.
96       Ay, madam, twenty several messengers:
97       Why do you send so thick?
98 Cleopatra.
99       Who's born that day
100       When I forget to send to Antony,
101       Shall die a beggar. Ink and paper, Charmian.
102       Welcome, my good Alexas. Did I, Charmian,
103       Ever love Caesar so?
104 Charmian.
105       O that brave Caesar!
106 Cleopatra.
107       Be choked with such another emphasis!
108       Say, the brave Antony.
109 Charmian.
110       The valiant Caesar!
111 Cleopatra.
112       By Isis, I will give thee bloody teeth,
113       If thou with Caesar paragon again
114       My man of men.
115 Charmian.
116       By your most gracious pardon,
117       I sing but after you.
118 Cleopatra.
119       My salad days,
120       When I was green in judgment: cold in blood,
121       To say as I said then! But, come, away;
122       Get me ink and paper:
123       He shall have every day a several greeting,
124       Or I'll unpeople Egypt.
