Edward III Scenes


Scene 8

Poitou. Fields near Poitiers. Another part of the field of battle.

(Audley; First English Esquire; Second English Esquire)

Two squires rescue the wounded Audley. (11 lines)

Enter Audley, wounded, and rescued by two English Esquires.

1. ESQUIRE.

How fares my lord?

AUDLEY.

Even as a man may do,

That dines at such a bloody feast as this.

2. ESQUIRE.

I hope, my lord, that is no mortal scar.

AUDLEY.

No matter, if it be; the count is cast,

And, in the worst, ends but a mortal man.

Good friends, convey me to the princely Edward,

That in the crimson bravery of my blood

I may become him with saluting him.

I’ll smile, and tell him, that this open scar

Doth end the harvest of his Audley’s war.

Exeunt.
