A monologue from the play by William Shakespeare
QUEEN: Can you not see? or will ye not observeThe strangeness of his altered countenance?With what a majesty he bears himself,How insolent of late he is become,How proud, how peremptory, and unlike himself?We know the time since he was mild and affable,And if we did but glance a far-off look,Immediately he was upon his knee,That all the court admired him for submission;But meet him now and, be it in the morn,When every one will give the time of day,He knits his brow and shows an angry eyeAnd passeth by with stiff unbowed knee,Disdaining duty that to us belongs.Small curs are not regarded when they grin,But great men tremble when the lion roars,And Humphrey is no little man in England.First note that he is near you in descent,And should you fall, he is the next will mount.Me seemeth then it is no policy,Respecting what a rancorous mind he bearsAnd his advantage following your decease,That he should come about your royal personOr be admitted to your highness’ council.By flattery hath he won the commons’ heart;And when he please to make commotion,’Tis to be feared they all will follow him.Now ’tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted.Suffer them now, and they’ll o’ergrow the gardenAnd choke the herbs for want of husbandry.The reverent care I bear unto my lordMade me collect these dangers in the duke.If it be fond, call it a woman’s fear;Which fear if better reasons can supplant,I will subscribe and say I wronged the duke.My Lord of Suffolk, Buckingham, and York,Reprove my allegation if you can,Or else conclude my words effectual.
