The Spanish Student - ACT II - SCENE V


SCENE: The COUNT OF LARA'S rooms. Enter the COUNT.

COUNT OF LARA. There's nothing in this world so sweet as love,
And next to love the sweetest thing is hate!
I've learned to hate, and therefore am revenged.
A silly girl to play the prude with me!
The fire that I have kindled--


Well, Francisco,
What tidings from Don Juan?

FRANCISCO. Good, my lord;
He will be present.

COUNT OF LARA. And the Duke of Lermos?

FRANCISCO. Was not at home.

COUNT OF LARA. How with the rest?

FRANCISCO. I've found
The men you wanted. They will all be there,
And at the given signal raise a whirlwind
Of such discordant noises, that the dance
Must cease for lack of music.

COUNT OF LARA. Bravely done.
Ah! little dost thou dream, sweet Preciosa,
What lies in wait for thee. Sleep shall not close
Thine eyes this night! Give me my cloak and sword.

My fears are windows,Through which all eyes seem gazing. Every faceExpresses some suspicion of my shame,And in derision seems to smile at me! HYPOLITO. Did I not caution

PRECIOSA. (reads). All are sleeping, weary heart! Thou, thou only sleepless art!Heigho! I wish Victorian were here.I know not what it is makes me so restless!(The bird sings.)Thou little prisoner with thy motley coat,That from thy vaulted, wiry dungeon singest,Like thee I am a captive, and, like thee,I have a gentle jailer.
