[Enter Cleomenes and Dion.]
The climate’s delicate, the air most sweet,
Fertile the isle, the temple much surpassing
The common praise it bears.
DION I shall report,
 For most it caught me, the celestial habits—
Methinks I so should term them—and the reverence
Of the grave wearers. O, the sacrifice,
How ceremonious, solemn, and unearthly
It was i’ th’ off’ring!
CLEOMENES But of all, the burst
And the ear-deaf’ning voice o’ th’ oracle,
Kin to Jove’s thunder, so surprised my sense
That I was nothing.
DION If th’ event o’ th’ journey
 Prove as successful to the Queen—O, be ’t so!—
As it hath been to us rare, pleasant, speedy,
The time is worth the use on ’t.
CLEOMENES Great Apollo
Turn all to th’ best! These proclamations,
 So forcing faults upon Hermione,
I little like.
DION The violent carriage of it
Will clear or end the business when the oracle,
Thus by Apollo’s great divine sealed up,
 Shall the contents discover. Something rare
Even then will rush to knowledge. Go. Fresh horses;
And gracious be the issue.
