I say, a moving grove.
If thou speak’st false,
SCENE VI. Dunsinane. Before the castle. Drum and colours. Enter MALCOLM, old SIWARD,
MacDUFF, and their Army, with boughs. MAL. Now near enough: your leafy screens
throw down, And show like those you are. You, worthy uncle, Shall, with my cousin, your right-noble son, Lead our first battle: worthy Macduff and we Shall take upon 's what else remains to do, According to our order. Siw.
Do we but find the tyrant's power to-night,
all breath, Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death.
Alarums. Enter MACBETH.
Thou 'lt be afraid to hear it. Yo. Siw. No; though thou call'st thyself a
hotter name Than any
is in hell. МАСв. .
My name's Macbeth. Yo. Siw. The devil himself could not pronounce
a title More hateful to mine ear. МАСв.
No, nor more fearful. Yo. Siw. Thou liest, abhorred tyrant; with my
sword I'll prove
the lie thou speak’st.
[They fight, and young SIWARD is slain. MACB.
Thou wast born of woman.
But swords I smile at, weapons laugh to scorn,
We have met with foes
Enter, sir, the castle.
On mine own sword ? whiles I see lives, the gashes Do better
Turn, hell-hound, turn!
I have no words: My voice is in my sword : thou bloodier villain Than terms can give thee out! [They fight МАСв. .
Thou losest labour : As
easy mayst thou the intrenchant air With thy keen sword impress as make me bleed : Let fall thy blade on vulnerable crests; I bear a charmed life, which must not yield To one of woman born. Macd.
Despair thy charm; And let the angel whom thou still hast served Tell thee, Macduff was from his mother's womb Untimely ripp'd.
MACB. Accursed be that tongue that tells me so,
Painted upon a pole, and underwrit,
I will not yield,
[Exeunt, fighting. Alarums. Retreat. Flourish. Enter, with drum and colours,
MALCOLM, old SIWARD, Ross, the other Thanes, and Soldiers. MAL, I would the friends we miss were safe
arrived. Siw. Some must go off: and yet, by these I see, So great a day as this is cheaply bought.
MAL. Macduff is missing, and your noble son.
Ross. Your son, my lord, has paid a soldier's debt:
Then he is dead ?
Had he his hurts before?
