Rof. By my life, I do; which I tender dearly, though I say I am a magician : Therefore, put you on your best array, bid your friends; for if you will be married tomorrow, you shall; and to Rosalind, if you will.

Enter Silvius, and Pbebe. Look, here comes a lover of mine, and a lover of hers.

Pbe. Youth, you have done me much ungentleness, To fhew the letter that I writ to you.

Roj. I care not, if I have : it is my study,
To seem despightful and ungentle to you :
You are there follow'd by a faithful shepherd;
Look upon him, love him ; he worships you.

Pbe. Good shepherd, tell this youth what 'tis to love.

Sil. It is to be made all of sighs and tears ;-
And so am I for Phebe.

Phe. And I for Ganymed.
Orla. And I for Rosalind.
Rof. And I for no woman.

Sil. It is to be all made of faith and service;
And so am I for Phebe.

Phe. And I for Ganymed.
Orla. And I for Rosalind.
Rof. And I for no woman.

Sil. It is to be all made of fantasy,
All made of paflion, and all made of wishes;
All adoration, duty, and observance,
All humbleness, all patience, and impatience,
All purity, all trial, all' perseverance ;
And so am I for Phebe.

Phe. And so am I for Ganymed.
Orla. And so am I for Rosalind.
Rof. And so am I for no woman

It was a lover, and bis lass,

With a hey, and a bo, and a bey nonino,
That o'er the green corn-field did pass

In the fpring time, 'the only pretty ring time,
When birds do fing, bey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.

With a hey, and a bo, and a hey nonino,

For love is crowned with the prime
