Thunder and lightning Enter Julius
CAESAR in his nightgown
Nor heaven nor earth have been at peace tonight.
Thrice hath Calphurnia in her sleep cried out,
“Help, ho! They murder
Enter a SERVANT
5Go bid the priests do present sacrifice
And bring me their opinions of success.
What mean you, Caesar? Think you to walk forth?
You shall not stir out of your house today.
10Caesar shall forth. The things that threatened me
Ne'er looked but on my back. When they shall see
The face of Caesar, they are vanishèd.
Caesar, I never stood on ceremonies,
Yet now they fright me. There is one within,
15Besides the things that we have heard and seen,
Recounts most horrid sights seen by the watch.
A lioness hath whelpèd in the streets,
And graves have yawned and yielded up their dead.
