1516 Oh for a Horse with wings: Hear’st thou Pisanio
1517 He is at Milford-Hauen: Read, and tell me
1518 How farre ’tis thither. If one of meane affaires
1519 May plod it in a weeke, why may not I
1520 Glide thither in a day? Then true Pisanio,
1521 Who long’st like me, to see thy Lord; who long’st
1522 (Oh let me bate) but not like me: yet long’st
1523 But in a fainter kinde. Oh not like me:
1524 For mine’s beyond, beyond: say, and speake thicke
1525 (Loues Counsailor should fill the bores of hearing,
1526 To’th’smothering of the Sense) how farre it is
1527 To this same blessed Milford. And by’th’way
1528 Tell me how Wales was made so happy, as
1529 T’ inherite such a Hauen. But first of all,
1530 How we may steale from hence: and for the gap
1531 That we shall make in Time, from our hence-going,
1532 And our returne, to excuse: but first, how get hence.
1533 Why should excuse be borne or ere begot?
1534 Weele talke of that heereafter. Prythee speake,
1535 How many store of Miles may we well rid
1536 Twixt houre, and houre?
