Midsummer Night's Dream
Act 1
SCENE I. Athens. The palace of THESEUS 
 Enter THESEUS, HIPPOLYTA, PHILOSTRATE, and Attendants
 
THESEUS
 Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hourDraws on apace; four happy days bring inAnother moon: but, O, methinks, how slowThis old moon wanes! she lingers my desires,Like to a step-dame or a dowagerLong withering out a young man revenue.
HIPPOLYTA
 Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;Four nights will quickly dream away the time;And then the moon, like to a silver bowNew-bent in heaven, shall behold the nightOf our solemnities.
THESEUS
 Go, Philostrate,Stir up the Athenian youth to merriments;Awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth;Turn melancholy forth to funerals;The pale companion is not for our pomp.
 Exit PHILOSTRATE 
 Hippolyta, I woo'd thee with my sword,And won thy love, doing thee injuries;But I will wed thee in another key,With pomp, with triumph and with revelling.
 Enter EGEUS, HERMIA, LYSANDER, and DEMETRIUS
 
EGEUS
 Happy be Theseus, our renowned duke!
THESEUS
 Thanks, good Egeus: what's the news with thee?
