Sc. 265.2

[Enter Gower]

gower Now our sands are almost run;

2More a little, and then dumb.

Editor’s Note3This my last boon give me,

4For such kindness must relieve me,

5That you aptly will suppose

6What pageantry, what feats, what shows,

Editor’s Note7What minstrelsy, and pretty din

8The regent made in Mytilene

Editor’s Note9To greet the King. So he thrived

10That he is promised to be wived

Editor’s Note11To fair Marina, but in no wise

Editor’s Note12Till he had done his sacrifice

13As Dian bade; whereto being bound

14The interim, pray you, all confound.

Editor’s Note15In feathered briefness sails are filled,

16And wishes fall out as they're willed.

Editor’s Note17At Ephesus the temple see:

18Our king, and all his company.

19That he can hither come so soon

Editor’s Note20Is by your fancies' thankful doom.
