EpilogueSc. 29

Enter Chorus.

Thus farre with rough, and all-vnable Pen,

2Our bending Author hath pursu'd the Story,

3In little roome confining mightie men,

4Mangling by starts the full course of their glory.

5Small time: but in that small, most greatly liued

6This Starre of England. Fortune made his Sword;

7By which, the Worlds best Garden he atchieued:

8And of it left his Sonne Imperiall Lord.

9Henry the Sixt, in Infant Bands crown'd King

10Of France and England, did this King succeed:

11Whose State so many had the managing,

12That they lost France, and made his England bleed:

13Which oft our Stage hath showne; and for their sake,

14In your faire minds let this acceptance take.
