(Alarum within. Enter, with drum and colours,
KING LEAR, CORDELIA, and Soldiers, over the stage;
(Enter EDGAR and GLOUCESTER)
Here, father, take the shadow
of this tree
For your good host; pray that the right may thrive:
If ever I return to you again,
I'll bring you comfort.
Grace go with you, sir!
and retreat within. Re-enter EDGAR)
Away, old man; give me thy hand; away!King Lear
hath lost, he and his daughter ta'en:
Give me thy hand; come on.
No farther, sir; a man may rot even here.
What, in ill thought
s again? Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither;Ripeness is all
: come on.
And that's true too.
