How now!

who calls?

Your mother.

Come now, quick, quick!


I am here.

What is your will?

This is the matter:

--nurse, give leave awhile,

We must talk in secret:

--nurse, come back again;

I have remember'd

me, thou's hear

our counsel.

Thou know'st my

daughter's of

a pretty age.

Faith, I

can tell her age

unto an hour.

How long is it now

To Lammas-tide?

Even or odd, of

all days in the year,

Come Lammas-eve at night

shall she be fourteen.

Susan and she--God rest

all Christian souls!

Were of an age:

Susan is with God;

She was too good for

but, as I said,

On Lammas-eve at night

shall she be fourteen;

That shall she, marry;

I remember it well.

'Tis since the

earthquake now eleven

years; And she

was wean'd,

--I never shall

forget it,

For then she could

stand alone;

nay, by the rood,

She could have run and

waddled all about; For

even the day before,

she broke her brow:

And then my husband

God be with his soul!

A' was a merry man--took

up the child:

' quoth he, 'dost thou

fall upon thy face?

Thou wilt fall backward

when thou hast more wit;

Wilt thou not, Jule?'

and, by my holidame,

The pretty wretch left

crying and said 'Ay.'

I warrant, an I should

live a thousand years,

I never should forget

'Wilt thou not,

Jule?' quoth he;

And, pretty fool, it

stinted and said 'Ay.'

And stint thou too,

I pray thee, nurse,

say I.


I have done.

God mark thee

to his grace!

An I might live to

see thee married once,

I have my wish.

Marry, that 'marry'

is the very

theme I came to talk of.

Tell me, daughter

Juliet, How

stands your disposition

to be married?

To marry?

It is an honour

that I dream not of.

An honour!

were not I thine

only nurse,

I would say thou

hadst suck'd wisdom
