Christopher Marlowe (1564–1593).  Edward the Second.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Act the Fourth
 
Scene I
 
 
[Near the Tower of London]
Enter KENT

  Kent.  Fair blows the wind for France; blow gentle gale,
Till Edmund be arriv’d for England’s good!
Nature, yield to my country’s cause in this.
A brother? No, a butcher of thy friends!        4
Proud Edward, dost thou banish me thy presence?
But I’ll to France, and cheer the wronged queen,
And certify what Edward’s looseness is.
Unnatural king! to slaughter noblemen        8
And cherish flatterers! Mortimer, I stay
Thy sweet escape: stand gracious, gloomy night,
To his device.
 
Enter Young MORTIMER, disguised

  Y. Mor.        Holla! who walketh there?
        12
Is’t you, my lord?
  Kent.        Mortimer, ’tis I;
But hath thy potion wrought so happily?
  Y. Mor.  It hath, my Lord; the warders all asleep,        16
I thank them, gave me leave to pass in peace.
But hath your grace got shipping unto France?
  Kent.  Fear it not.  Exeunt.
