    That it should come to this,
    But two months dead, nay, not so much, not two,
    So excellent a king, that was to this
    Hyperion to a satyr, so loving to my mother
    That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
    Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth,
    Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him
    As if increase of appetite had grown
    By what it fed on, and yet within a month--
    Let me not think on't; frailty, thy name is woman--
    A little month, or ere those shoes were old
    With which she followed my poor father's body
    Like Niobe, all tears, why she, even she--
    O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason
    Would have mourned longer--married with my uncle,
    My father's brother, but no more like my father
    Than I to Hercules.
