N sooth, I know not why I am so sad :
It wearies me; you say, it wearies you ;
But how I caught it, found it, or came

by it,
What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is


I am to learn
And such a want-wit sadness makes of me,
That I have much ado to know my self.

Sal. Your mind is tosling on the ocean;
There, where your Argofies with portly Sail,
Like signiors and rich burghers on the food,
Or as it were the pageants of the sea,
Do over-peer the petty traffickers,
That curtsie to them, do them reverence,
As they fly by then with their woven wings.
