GENTLEMAN.

GENTLEMAN.

Why, how now, sweet Nan! I hope you jest.

NAN.*
No, by my troth, I love the fool the best :
And, if you be jealous, God give you good-night!
I fear you're a gelding, you caper so light.

I thought she had jested and meant but a fable,
But now do I see she hath play'[a] with his bable.
I wish all my friends by me to take heed,
That a fool come not near you when you mean

to speed.
