FIRST PART OF

KING HENRY VI.

ACT I.
SCENE I. Westminster Abbey.
Dead March. Corpse of King Henry the Fifth dis-

covered, lying in state; attended on by the DUKES OF
BEDFORD, GLOSTER, and EXETEN; the EARL OP WAR-
WICK, the BISHOP OF WINCHESTER, Heralds, etc.
Bed. Hone be the heavens with black, yield day to

night!
Comets, importing change of times and states,
Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky,
And with them scourge the bad revolting stars,
That have consented unto Henry's death!
Henry the Fifth, too famous to live long!
England ne'er lost a king of so much worth.

Glo. England ne'er had a king, until his time.
Virtue he had, deserving to command:
His brandish'd sword did blind men with his beams;
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 speecb:
He ne'er lift up his hand, but conquer'd.
Ere. We mourn in black; Why mourn we not in

blood ?
Henry is dead, and never shall revive;
Upon a wooden coffin we attend;
And death's dishonourable victory
We with our stately presence glorify,
Like captives bound to a triumphant car.
What? shall we curse the planets of mishar,
That plotted thus our glory's overthrow
