Act V
 
Scene II
 
 
[A field between the two camps]
Alarum within. Enter with drum and colours, LEAR, CORDELIA, and Soldiers, over the stage; and exeunt
Enter EDGAR and GLOUCESTER

  Edg.  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.        4
  Glou.  Grace go with you, sir!  Exit [EDGAR].
 
Alarum and retreat within. Re-enter EDGAR

  Edg.  Away, old man; give me thy hand; away!
King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta’en.
Give me thy hand; come on.        8
  Glou.  No further, sir; a man may rot even here.
  Edg.  What, in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither;
Ripeness is all. Come on.        12
  Glou.        And that’s true too.  Exeunt.
