Pardon! I heard you here declaim; A Grecian tragedy you doubtless read?Improvement in this art is now my aim, For now - a - days it much avails.Indeed An actor, oft I've heard it said, as teacher, May give instruction to apreacher.
Since for the last time I the Brocken scale, That folk are ripe for doomsday,now one sees; And just because my cask begins to fail, So the whole world isalso on the lees.
Your pardon! 'tis delightful to transport Oneself into the spirit of the past, Tosee in times before us how a wise man thought, And what a glorious height wehave achieved at last.
Vile reprobate! go get thee hence; Forbear the lovely girl to name! Nor in myhalf - distracted sense, Kindle anew the smouldering flame!Mephistopheles
