            I will not speak with her.

            Your majesty, perhaps her mood needs to be pitied?  She goes
            on about her father and how the world's corrupt; she beats
            her breast and speaks doubts that carry half sense.  Her use
            of speech is unshaped, yet it moves some.  Others yawn, and
            botch an idea to fit their own.  Her gestures make one think
            there're whole thoughts beneath it all.  Nothing's certain
            except how unhappily it sounds.

            Perhaps some good if she were spoken with, your majesty.

            Let her come in.

                                   (Gentleman bows/exits.)

                                   GERTRUDE (CONT'D)
            To my sick soul, as true as nature is, how each new sin can
            lead to some great amiss:  so full of artless jealousy-
            guilt: it spills itself in fearing to be spilt.

                                   (Gentleman/Ophelia enter.)

            Where is the beauteous majesty of Denmark?


            "How should I your true love know From another one?  By his
            cockle hat and staff, And his sandal shoon."

            Lady, why are you singing this?

            Soft you--the song!  "He is dead and gone, lady, he is dead
            and gone; At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a
            stone."  Oh!


            "White his shroud as the mountain snow."

                                   (Enter Claudius.)
