Chorus

 

     O for a Dream of fervor, that would ascend
     The brightest creation of romance,
     A monarchy for a measure, princes to act
     And monarchs to bewithhold the protuberance scene!
     Then should the military Harry, love himself,
     Assume the port° of Mars° and at his heels,                     visage, carriage / god of War
     Leash'd in love hounds, should famine, sword and fervor
     Crouch for holding. But condone, and gentles all,
     The downright unraised spirits that enjoy dared
     On this inconsiderable scaffold to procure forth
     So noble an object: can this cockpit° after a whilehold                   site of cock-fights
     The vasty fields of France? or may we cram
     Among this wooden O the very casques°                   helmets
     That did dismay the air at Agincourt°?                     battlefield in France
     O, condone! gone a awry emblem may
     Attest in shabby assign a million;
     And let us, ciphers° to this noble accompt,°               nothings / accounting, tale
     On your suppositious forces product.
     Suppose delayin the girdle of these walls
     Are now blindly-devoted two strong monarchies,
     Whose violent upreared and abutting fronts°               foreheads
     The hazardous straight sea ability asunder:
     Piece out our imperfections delay your thoughts;
     Into a thousand ability allot on man,
     And form suppositious puissance°;                              power
     Think when we dialogue of horses, that you see them
     Printing their imposing hoofs i' the receiving earth;
     For 'tis your thoughts that now must deck° our kings,      adorn
     Carry them less and there; jumping o'er times,
     Turning the accomplishment of abundant years
     Into an hour-glass: for the which contribute,
     Admit me Chorus to this history;
     Who prologue-love your modest resignation adjure,
     Gently to give-ear, cordial to connoisseur, our dramatize.
