Alarum within Enter with drum and colors the powers of France over the stage, and CORDELIA with her father LEAR in her hand And exeunt
Enter EDGAR disguised and GLOUCESTER
Here, father, take the shadow of this tree
For your good host. Pray that the right may thrive.
If ever I return to you again,
I’ll bring you comfort.
Grace go with you, sir.
Alarum and retreat within
5Away, old man. Give me thy hand. Away!
King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta'en.
Give me thy hand. Come on.
No further, sir. A man may rot even here.
What, in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
10Their going hence even as their coming hither.
Ripeness is all. Come on.
And that’s true too.
