You, lord archbishop,
Whose see is by a civil peace maintain'd;
Whose beard the silver hand of peace hath touch'd;
These things, indeed, you have articulated,
With some fine colour, that may please the eye
And never yet did insurrection want
You look pale, and gaze,
And put on fear, and cast yourself in wonder,
In the most high and palmy state of Rome,
The graves stood tenantless, and the sheeted dead
As, stars with trains of fire and dews of blood,
Upon whose influence Neptune's empire stands,
There is one within,
Besides the things that we have heard and seen,
And graves have yawn'd, and yielded up their dead:
In ranks, and squadrons, and right form of war,
The noise of battle hurtled in the air,
Horses did neigh, and dying men did groan;
The people fear me; for they do observe
Had found some months asleep, and leap'd them over.
That our great grandsire, Edward, sick'd and died.
In the Prodigies, 36---i. 1. all the editions read "As, stars with trains of fire and dews of blood," &c. and this has caused all the commentators to conclude something preceding has been lost; but I am of a different opinion: by reading "Stars fought with trains of fire and dews of blood," &c. the sense is complete, and in accordance with the prodigy mentioned in Julius Cæsar, 29---ii. 2, "Fierce fiery warriors fight upon the clouds," &c. See also, Judges v. 20, "The stars in their courses fought against Sisera."
The night has been unruly: Where we lay,
Of dire combustion, and confused events,
New hatch'd to the woeful time.
The obscure bird
Clamour'd the live-long night: some say, the earth
Was feverous, and did shake.
They say, five moons were seen to-night:
Threescore and ten I can remember well:
Hath trifled former knowings.
On Tuesday last, A falcon, tow'ring in her pride of place,
Was by a mousing owl, hawk'd at, and kill'd. And Duncan's horses (a thing most strange and cer-tain),
Beauteous and swift, the minions of their race, Turn'd wild in nature, broke their stalls, flung out, Contending 'gainst obedience, as they would make War with mankind.
'Tis said, they eat each other.
