PROTEUS

      Oh sir,| I find | her mil|der than | she was,
           ,          ,        ,         ,         ,      ->
      And yet | she takes | excep|tions at | your per||son.
 
THURIO
        ,        2    ,      2      ,
      What?| That my leg | is too long?
 
PROTEUS
       ,      2      ,        ,
      No, that it | is too | little.  (tri with prev)
 
THURIO
             ,        ,         ,         ,         ,      ->
      I'll wear | a boot,| to make | it some|what roun||der.
 
JULIA [Aside]
            ,          ,          ,           ,          ,
      But love | will not | be spurred | to what | it loathes.
 
THURIO
             ,         ,        ,
      What says | she to | my face?  (tri with next)
 
PROTEUS
            ,        ,       ,         ->
      She says | it is | a fair || one.
 
THURIO
       ,        2     ,        ,         ,         ,
      Nay | then the wan|ton lies:| my face | is black.
 
PROTEUS
             ,           ,               ,   ,       ,
      But pearls | are fair;| and the / old say|ing is,
        ,                ,          ,    2    ,         ,
      Black men | are pearls,| in beau|teous la|dies' eyes.
 
JULIA [Aside]
             ,            ,         ,         ,         ,
      'Tis true,| such^pearls | as put | out la|dies' eyes,
          ,        ,        ,           ,         ,
      For I | had ra|ther wink,| than look | on them.
 
THURIO
            ,          ,         ,
      How likes | she my | discourse?
 
PROTEUS
       ,                ,        ,
      Ill, when | you talk | of war.  (tri with prev)
 
THURIO
            ,         ,         ,          ,          ,
      But well,| when I | discourse | of love | and peace.
 
JULIA [Aside]
           ,           ,     ,          ,           ,
      But bet|ter in/deed, when | you hold | your peace.
 
THURIO
             ,         ,       ,      o
      What says | she to | my va|lor?
 
PROTEUS
          ,         ,        ,        ,
      Oh sir, she makes no doubt of that. (tetra with prev)
 
JULIA [Aside]
            ,      ,                ,         ,      ,
      She needs | not, when | she knows | it cow|ardice.
 
THURIO
             ,         ,        ,
      What says | she to | my birth?
 
PROTEUS
            ,          ,        ,
      That you | are well | derived.  (tri with prev)
 
JULIA [Aside]
        ,             ,      ,      2    ,
      True: from | a gen|tleman | to a fool. (tetra with next few)
 
THURIO
          ,       ,           ,
      Consi|ders she | my posses|sions?
 
PROTEUS
      <- ,     ,          ,         T
        Oh,|| aye; and | pities | them.
 
THURIO
                                          T    T
                                        Wherefore?
 
JULIA [Aside]
             ,        ,            ,         o
      That such | an ass | should owe | them.   (end tetra)
 
PROTEUS
             ,         ,         ,
      That they | are out | by lease.
 
JULIA
                                             ,           ,
                                      Here comes | the duke.
 
[Enter DUKE]
 
DUKE
           ,         ,    2    ,         ,    ,
      How now | Sir Pro|teus; how | now Thu|rio?
        ,             ,         ,     ,         ,
      Which of | you saw | Sir Eg|lamour | of late?
 
THURIO
          ,
      Not I.
 
PROTEUS
          ,
      Nor I.  (overlapping)
 
DUKE
             ,     2       ,
            Saw you my | daughter?
 
PROTEUS
                                    ,
                                   Neither.
 
DUKE
                                                  ,
                                            Why then
              ,       ,         ,         ,      ,
      She's fled | unto | that pea|sant, Va|lentine;
           ,     ,        ,        ,     ,
      And Eg|lamour | is in | her com|pany:
             ,         ,      ,         ,           ,
      'Tis true:| for Fri|ar Lau|rence met | them both,
          ,       ,        ,           ,           ,      ->
      As he | in pe|nance wan|dered through | the fo||rest;
       ,      2       ,           ,            ,        ,
      Him | he knew^well,| and guessed | that it | was she,
           ,        ,               ,    ,        ,
      But be|ing masked,| he was / not sure | of it.
          ,          ,        ,        ,      2->
      Besides | she did | intend | confes|sion
          ,            ,         ,       ,      ,              ,
      At Pat||rick's cell | this e|ven; and | there she | was not.
              ,      ,          ,           ,            ,
      These^like|lihoods | confirm | her flight | from hence;
        ,             ,          ,      ,             ,
      Therefore | I pray | you stand | not to | discourse,
            ,          ,       ,         ,          ,
      But mount | you pre|sently | and meet | with me
        ,         ,       ,         ,         ,
      Upon | the ri|sing of | the moun|tain-foot
             ,        ,         ,     ,            2      ,
      That leads | towards Man|tua,| whither | they are fled:
           ,             ,      ,         ,       ,
      Dispatch |(sweet* gen|tlemen,| and fol|low me.
 
[Exit]
 
THURIO
            ,        ,       ,      ,         ,
      Why this | it is,| to be | a pee|vish girl,
             ,          ,         ,        ,        ,
      That flies | her for|tune when | it fol|lows her:
            ,        ,      3  3     ,         ,     ,
      I'll af|ter, more | to be revenged | on Eg|lamour
            ,          ,         ,        ,    ,
      Than for | the love | of reck|less Sil|via.
 
[Exit]
 
PROTEUS
          ,         ,         ,         ,    2     ,
      And I | will fol|low, more | for Sil|via's love
             ,        ,     ,           ,          ,
      Than hate | of Eg|lamour | that goes | with her.
 
[Exit]
 
JULIA
          ,         ,         ,         ,            ,
      And I | will fol|low, more | to cross | that love
             ,         ,   2     ,         ,          ,
      Than hate | for Sil|via, that | is gone | for love.
 
[Exit]
