Act 5 Scene 2

Scene 2

[Alarum within. Enter, with Drum and Colors, Lear,
Cordelia, and Soldiers, over the stage, and exit.]
[Enter Edgar and Gloucester.]

 Here, father, take the shadow of this tree
 For your good host. Pray that the right may thrive.
 If ever I return to you again,
 I’ll bring you comfort.

[5]GLOUCESTER   Grace go with you, sir.
[Edgar exits.]
[Alarum and Retreat within.]

[Enter Edgar.]

 Away, old man. Give me thy hand. Away.
 King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta’en.
 Give me thy hand. Come on.

 No further, sir. A man may rot even here.

 What, in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
 Their going hence even as their coming hither.
 Ripeness is all. Come on.

GLOUCESTER   And that’s true too.
[They exit.]
