Cherish this beauteous mourner, take her from me,
Warw. Then I shall die in peace.
Waru. Impossible: I feel
upon my heart, And all will soon be o'er.
King E. Alas! my friend, the memory of thee Will poison every bliss.
Warw. All-healing time, That closes every wound, shall pour its balm O'er thine.- Meanwhile, remember Warwick's fate. I
gave my word to Margaret, and broke it; Heav'n is not to be mock’d, it soon o'ertakes us, And in our crime we meet our punishment. O, Edward, if thou hop'st that length of days, And fair prosperity, shall crown thy wishes, Beware of passion and resentment-make Thy people's good and happiness thy own, Discourage faction, banish flatterers, Keep thy faith inviolate, and reign in peace. I can no more--My love !-Have mercy, Heaven!
[Dies. King E. Let ev'ry honour, to a soldier due, Attend the hero to his tomb-meanwhile, Deep in the living tablet of my heart, Will I engrave thy words-illustrious shade! Living, thou wert my counsellor and friend-And dead, I will remember and obey thee.
Lady E. G. Warwick, farewell! I shall not long
survive thee. King E. I hope thou wilt-Elizabeth, remember His dying charge, think on thy promise giv’n. Thou shalt remain with me, with me lament Our common benefactor; we will sit And talk together of my Warwick's virtues, For I will try to emulate them all, And learn, by copying him, to merit thee. His great example shall inspire my breast With patriot zeal-shall teach me to subdue The pow'r of faction, vanquish party rage, And make me, what alone I wish to be, The happy king of an united people.
