ORLANDO

Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love. And thou, thrice-crownéd queen of night, survey With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above, Thy huntress' name that my full life doth sway. O Rosalind, these trees shall be my books, And in their barks my thoughts I’ll character, That every eye which in this forest looks Shall see thy virtue witnessed everywhere. Run, run, Orlando, carve on every tree The fair, the chaste, and unexpressive she.

ORLANDO

Hang there on this tree, you verse of my poetry, as a witness for my love.  And you, goddess Diana, queen of the night: with your virginal eye from your pale home in the moon above, survey your huntress Rosalind, whose name rules my whole life. Oh, Rosalind, these trees will be my books, and I'll write down my thoughts in their bark. That way, everyone who looks around in this forest will see your excellence described everywhere. Run, run, Orlando, and on every tree carve verses about the beautiful, the chaste, the indescribable Rosalind.

And how like you this shepherd’s life, Master Touchstone?

CORIN

TOUCHSTONE

Truly, shepherd, in respect of itself, it is a good life; but in respect that it is a shepherd’s life, it isnaught. In respect that it is solitary, I like it very well; but in respect that it is private, it is a very vile life. Now in respect it is in the fields, it pleaseth me well; but in respect it is not in the court,it is tedious. As it is a spare life, look you, it fitsmy humor well; but as there is no more plenty in it, itgoes much against my stomach. Hast any philosophy in thee, shepherd?

No more but that I know the more one sickens, the worseat ease he is, and that he that wants money, means, andcontent is without three good friends; that the property of rain is to wet, and fire to burn; that good pasture makes fat sheep; and that a great cause of the night is lack of the sun; that he that hath learned no wit by nature nor art may complain of good breeding or comes of a very dull kindred.

[as Aliena, reads] Why should this a desert be? For it is unpeopled? No. Tongues I’ll hang on every tree That shall civil sayings show. Some how brief the life of man Runs his erring pilgrimage, That the stretching of a span Buckles in his sum of age; Some of violated vows 'Twixt the souls of friend and friend. But upon the fairest boughs, Or at every sentence end, Will I “Rosalinda” write, Teaching all that read to know The quintessence of every sprite Heaven would in little show. Therefore heaven nature charged That one body should be filled With all graces wide-enlarged. Nature presently distilled Helen’s cheek, but not her heart, Cleopatra’s majesty, Atalanta’s better part, Sad Lucretia’s modesty. Thus Rosalind of many parts By heavenly synod was devised, Of many faces, eyes, and hearts To have the touches dearest prized. Heaven would that she these gifts should have And I to live and die her slave.

ROSALIND

I have been told so of many. But indeed an old religious uncle of mine taught me to speak, who was in his youth an inland man, one that knew courtship too well, for there he fell in love. I have heard him read many lectures against it, and I thank God I am not a woman, to be touched with so many giddy offenses as he hath generally taxed their whole sex withal.

No, I will not cast away my physic but on those that are sick. There is a man haunts the forest that abuses our young plants with carving “Rosalind” on their barks,hangs odes upon hawthorns and elegies on brambles, all,forsooth, deifying the name of Rosalind. If I could meet that fancy-monger I would give him some good counsel, for he seems to have the quotidian of love uponhim.

ROSALIND

A lean cheek, which you have not; a blue eye and sunken, which you have not; an unquestionable spirit, which you have not; a beard neglected, which you have not— but I pardon you for that, for simply your having inbeard is a younger brother’s revenue. Then your hose should be ungartered, your bonnet unbanded, your sleeve unbuttoned, your shoe untied, and everything about you demonstrating a careless desolation. But you are no suchman. You are rather point-device in your accouterments,as loving yourself than seeming the lover of any other.

Me believe it? You may as soon make her that you love believe it, which I warrant she is apter to do than to confess she does.

ROSALIND

Love is merely a madness and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and a whip as madmen do, and the reason why they are not so punished and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love,too. Yet I profess curing it by counsel.

ROSALIND

Yes, one, and in this manner. He was to imagine me hislove, his mistress, and I set him every day to woo me; at which time would I, being but a moonish youth, grieve, be effeminate, changeable, longing and liking, proud, fantastical, apish, shallow, inconstant, full of tears, full of smiles; for every passion something, and for no passion truly anything, as boys and women are, for the most part, cattle of this color; would now like him, now loathe him; then entertain him, then forswear him; now weep for him, then spit at him, that I drave mysuitor from his mad humor of love to a living humor of madness, which was to forswear the full stream of the world and to live in a nook merely monastic. And thus I cured him, and this way will I take upon me to wash yourliver as clean as a sound sheep’s heart, that there shall not be one spot of love in ’t.
