    A monologue from the play by William Shakespeare

    KING: Come hither you that would be combatants.
    Henceforth I charge you, as you love our favor,
    Quite to forget this quarrel and the cause.
    And you, my lords: remember where we are,
    In France, amongst a fickle wavering nation.
    If they perceive disssension in our looks
    And that within ourselves we disagree,
    How will their grudging stomachs be provoked
    To willfull disobedience, and rebel!
    Beside, what infamy will there arise
    When foreign princes shall be certified
    That for a toy, a thing of no regard,
    King Henry’s peers and chief nobility
    Destroyed themselves and lost the realm of France!
    O, think upon the conquest of my father,
    My tender years, and let us not forgo
    That for a trifle that was bought with blood!
    Let me be umpire in this doubtful strife.
    I see no reason, if I wear this rose,

    [Puts on a red rose.]

    That any one should therefore be suspicious
    I more incline to Somerset than York.
    Both are my kinsmen, and I love them both.
    As well they may upbraid me with a crown
    Because forsooth the King of Scots is crowned.
    But your discretions better can persuade
    Than I am able to instruct or teach;
    And therefore, as we hither came in peace,
    So let us still continue peace and love.
    Cousin of York, we institute your grace
    To be our regent in these parts of France;
    And, good my Lord of Somerset, unite
    Your troops of horsemen with his bands of foot;
    And like true subjects, sons of your progenitors,
    Go cheerfully together and digest
    Your angry choler on your enemies.
    Ourself, my Lord Protector, and the rest,
    After some respite will return to Calais;
    From thence to England, where I hope ere long
    To be presented, by your victories,
    With Charles, Alencon, and that traitorous rout.
