O For a Muse of Fire, that would ascend?The brightest Heauen of Inuention:?A Kingdome for a Stage, Princes to Act,?And Monarchs to behold the swelling Scene.?Then should the Warlike Harry, like himselfe,?Assume the Port of Mars, and at his heeles?(Leasht in, like Hounds) should Famine, Sword, and Fire?Crouch for employment. But pardon, Gentles all:?The flat vnraysed Spirits, that hath dard,?On this vnworthy Scaffold, to bring forth?So great an Obiect. Can this Cock-Pit hold?The vastie fields of France? Or may we cramme?Within this Woodden O, the very Caskes?That did affright the Ayre at Agincourt??O pardon: since a crooked Figure may?Attest in little place a Million,?And let vs, Cyphers to this great Accompt,?On your imaginarie Forces worke.?Suppose within the Girdle of these Walls?Are now confind two mightie Monarchies,?Whose high, vp-reared, and abutting Fronts,?The perillous narrow Ocean parts asunder.?Peece out our imperfections with your thoughts:?Into a thousand parts diuide one Man,?And make imaginarie Puissance.?Thinke when we talke of Horses, that you see them?Printing their prowd Hoofes ith receiuing Earth:?For tis your thoughts that now must deck our Kings,?Carry them here and there: Iumping ore Times;?Turning th accomplishment of many yeeres?Into an Howre-glasse: for the which supplie,?Admit me Chorus to this Historie;?Who Prologue-like, your humble patience pray,?Gently to heare, kindly to iudge our Play.?Enter.
