Description: The First Part of Henry the Sixth ¥ I.1 Dead march. Enter the funeral of King Henry the Fifth, attended on by the Duke of Bedford, Humphrey Duke of Gloucester, the Duke of Exeter, the Earl of Warwick, the Bishop of Winchester, and the Duke of Somerset. bedford Hung be the heavens with black! Yield, day, to night! Comets, importing change of times and states, 2 Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky, And with them scourge the bad revolting stars 4 That have consented unto Henry''s death- King Henry the Fifth, too famous to live long. England ne''er lost a king of so much worth. gloucester England ne''er had a king until his time. Virtue he had, deserving to command. 9 His brandished sword did blind men with his beams. 10 His arms spread wider than a dragon''s wings. His sparkling eyes, replete with wrathful fire, More dazzled and drove back his enemies Than midday sun, fierce bent against their faces. What should I say? His deeds exceed all speech. He ne''er lift up his hand but conquerd. 16 exeter We mourn in black; why mourn we not in blood? 17 Henry is dead, and never shall revive. Upon a wooden coffin we attend, And death''s dishonorable victory 20 We with our stately presence glorify, Like captives bound to a triumphant car. 22 What, shall we curse the planets of mishap, That plotted thus our glory''s overthrow? Or shall we think the subtle-witted French Conjurers and sorcerers, that, afraid of him, By magic verses have contrived his end? bishop of winchester He was a king blessed of the King of Kings. Unto the French, the dreadful judgment day So dreadful will not be as was his sight. 30 The battles of the Lord of Hosts he fought. The church''s prayers made him so prosperous. 32 gloucester The church? Where is it? Had not churchmen prayed, 33 His thread of life had not so soon decayed. None do you like but an effeminate prince, Whom like a schoolboy you may overawe. bishop of winchester Gloucester, whate''er we like, thou art Protector, And lookest to command the prince and realm. Thy wife is proud: she holdeth thee in awe, 39 More than God or religious churchmen may. 40 gloucester Name not religion, for thou lov''st the flesh, And ne''er throughout the year to church thou go''st, Except it be to pray against thy foes. bedford Cease, cease these jars, and rest your minds in peace. 44 Let''s to the altar. Heralds, wait on us. Exeunt Warwick, Somerset, and Heralds with coffin. Instead of gold, we''ll offer up our arms- 46 Since arms avail not, now that Henry''s dead. Posterity, await for wretched years, 48 When, at their mothers'' moistened eyes, babes shall suck, Our isle be made a marish of salt tears, 50 And none but women left to wail the dead. Henry the Fifth, thy ghost I invocate: Prosper this realm; keep it from civil broils; 53 Combat with adverse planets in the heavens. A far more glorious star thy soul will make Than Julius Caesar or bright- Enter a Messenger. messenger My honorable lords, health to you all. Sad tidings bring I to you out of France, Of loss, of slaughter, and discomfiture. Guyenne, Compigne, Rouen, Rheims, OrlZans, 60 Paris, Gisors, Poitiers are all quite lost. bedford What sayst thou, man, before dead Henry''s corpse? Speak softly, or the loss of those great towns Will make him burst his lead and rise from death. 64 gloucester To the Messenger Is Paris lost? Is Rouen yielded up? If Henry were recalled to life again, These news would cause him once more yield the ghost. exeter To the Messenger How were they lost? What treachery was used? messenger No treachery, but want of men and money. Amongst the soldiers this is mutterd: 70 That here you maintain several factions, And whilst a field should be dispatched and fought, 72 You are disputing of your generals. 73 One would have ling''ring wars, with little cost; Another would fly swift, but wanteth wings; 75 A third thinks, without expense at all, By guileful fair words peace may be obtained. Awake, awake, English nobility! Let not sloth dim your honors new-begot. Cropped are the flower-de-luces in your arms; 80 Of England''s coat, one half is cut away.Exit. exeter Were our tears wanting to this funeral, 82 These tidings would call forth her flowing tides. 83 bedford Me they concern; Regent I am of France. Give me my steeld coat. I''ll fight for France. Away with these disgraceful wailing robes! He removes his mourning robe. Wounds will I lend the French, instead of eyes, 87 To weep their intermissive miseries. 88 Enter to them another Messenger, with letters. second messenger Lords, view these letters, full of bad mischance. France is revolted from the English quite, 90 Except some petty towns of no import. The Dauphin Charles is crownd king in Rheims; The Bastard of OrlZans with him is joined; RenZ, Duke of Anjou, doth take his The Duke of Alenon flieth to his side.Exit. exeter The dauphin crownd king? All fly to him? O, whither shall we fly from this reproach? gloucester We will not fly, but to our enemies'' throats. Bedford, if thou be slack, I''ll fight it out. bedford Gloucester, why doubt''st thou of my forwardness? 100 An army have I mustered in my thoughts, Wherewith already France is overrun. Enter another Messenger. third messenger My gracious lords, to add to your laments, Wherewith you now bedew King Henry''s hearse, I must inform you of a dismal fight 105 Betwixt the stout Lord Talbot and the French. 106 bishop of winchester What, wherein Talbot overcame-is''t so? third messenger O no, wherein Lord Talbot was o''erthrown. The circumstance I''ll tell you more at large. 109 The tenth of August last, this dreadful lord, 110 Retiring from the siege of OrlZans, Having full scarce six thousand in his troop, 112 By three and twenty thousand of the French Was round encompassd and set upon. No leisure had he to enrank his men. He wanted pikes to set before his archers- 116 Instead whereof, sharp stakes plucked out of hedges They pitchd in the ground confusdly, To keep the horsemen off from breaking in. More than three hours the fight continud, 120 Where valiant Talbot above human thought Enacted wonders with his sword and lance. Hundreds he sent to hell, and none durst stand him; 123 Here, there, and everywhere, enraged he slew. The French exclaimed the devil was in arms: All the whole army stood agazed on him. 126 His soldiers, spying his undaunted spirit, "A Talbot! A Talbot!" cried out amain, 128 And rushed into the bowels of the battle. Here had the conquest fully been sealed up, 130 If Sir John Fastolf had not played the coward. 131 He, being in the vanguard placed behind, 132 With purpose to relieve and follow them, Cowardly fled, not having struck one stroke. Hence grew the general wrack and massacre. 135 Enclosd were they with their enemies. 136 A base Walloon, to win the dauphin''s grace, 137 Thrust Talbot with a spear into the back- Whom all France, with their chief assembled strength, Durst not presume to look once in the face. 140 bedford Is Talbot slain then? I will slay myself, For living idly here in pomp and ease
