THE PALACE AT WESTMINSTER.
KING HENRY, AND THE PRINCE OF WALES.
Henry. HERE is your crown:
And He that wears the crown immortally,
Long guard it yours! If I affect it more, Than as
your honour, and as your renown, Let me no more
from this obedience rise, (Which my most true
and inward duteous spirit Teacheth)this prostrate
and exterior bending! Heaven witness with me, when
I here came in And found no course of breath within
your majesty, How cold it struck my heart! If I
do feign, O, let me in my present wildness die;
And never live to show th' incredulous world The
noble change that I have purposed!
