Both here and hence pursue me lasting strife,
If once I be a widow, ever I be a wife!

'Tis deeply sworn. Sweet, leave me here a while,
My spirits grow dull, and fain I would beguile
The tedious day with sleep.

Player Queen:
Sleep rock thy brain,
And never come mischance between us twain!

Queen:
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
