SIMONE. My good wife, you come slowly; were it not better To run to meet your lord?
SIMONE. My noble Lord, You bring me such high honour that my tongue Like a slave's tongue is tied, and cannot say The word it would.
Simone, Your reckless tongue needs curbing; and besides, You do forget this gracious lady here Whose delicate ears are surely not attuned To such coarse music.
SIMONE. True: I had forgotten, Nor will offend again.
SIMONE. You jest, my Lord; She is not worthy of so great a Prince.
Honest Simone, Wool-selling or wool-gathering is for you.

I like it well, Honest Simone; and, with your good leave, Will toast the fair Bianca when her lips Have like red rose-leaves floated on this cup And left its vintage sweeter.
SIMONE. It is strange, my lord, I cannot eat or drink with you, to-night.
Be not afraid, Simone. I will stand Most constant in my friendship, But to-night I go to mine own home, and that at once.
