Que. So, leave us here a while, beare backe the light,
I would not be discovered if he come,
You know his entertainement, so be gone,
I am not chearefull troth, what point so ere

With desolate darkedesse, and disconsolate fancies,

Vsurpes my power, rules where it hath no right. She sleepes.

Enter Roxano as she sleepes with Tymethes hudwinckt.


Tym. Me thinkes this a longer voyage than the first? Rox.
