	[Enter TITUS ANDRONICUS, with Hunters, &c., MARCUS,

TITUS ANDRONICUS: The hunt is up, the morn is bright and grey,
	The fields are fragrant and the woods are green:
	Uncouple here and let us make a bay
	And wake the emperor and his lovely bride
	And rouse the prince and ring a hunter's peal,
	That all the court may echo with the noise.
	Sons, let it be your charge, as it is ours,
	To attend the emperor's person carefully:
	I have been troubled in my sleep this night,
	But dawning day new comfort hath inspired.

	[A cry of hounds and horns, winded in a peal. Enter
	CHIRON, and Attendants]

	Many good morrows to your majesty;
	Madam, to you as many and as good:
	I promised your grace a hunter's peal.

SATURNINUS: And you have rung it lustily, my lord;
	Somewhat too early for new-married ladies.

BASSIANUS: Lavinia, how say you?

LAVINIA: I say, no;
	I have been broad awake two hours and more.

SATURNINUS: Come on, then; horse and chariots let us have,
	And to our sport.


	Madam, now shall ye see
	Our Roman hunting.

MARCUS ANDRONICUS:                   I have dogs, my lord,
	Will rouse the proudest panther in the chase,
	And climb the highest promontory top.

TITUS ANDRONICUS: And I have horse will follow where the game
	Makes way, and run like swallows o'er the plain.

DEMETRIUS: Chiron, we hunt not, we, with horse nor hound,
	But hope to pluck a dainty doe to ground.
