Thou Julia, Thou Has Metamorphosed Me

Thou Julia, Thou Has Metamorphosed Me lyrics

Thou Julia, Thou Has Metamorphosed Me

Proteus (cont’d)
Thou, julia, thou hast metamorphosed me.

Made me neglect my studies, love my time
War with good counsel, set the world at naught;
Made with good musing, weak, hart sick with thought
Pro-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-te-us.

(proteus signs his name with a
Flourish. Julia and lucetta enter,
Carrying rakes and hoes and burlap
Bales. They stop when they see
Proteus. Proteus is terrified at
Their proximity. He tries to
Speak. He runs off)

Julia
(watching him go)
Lucetta, wouldst thou counsel me to fall in love’

Lucetta
Ay, madam, so you stumble not unheedfully.

Julia
What thinkst thou of the gentle proteus’

Lucetta
Lord, lord to se what folly reigns in us.

Julia
How now’ what means this passion at his name

Lucetta
Then, thus, of many good i think him best.

Julia
Your reason’

Lucetta
I have no other than a woman’s reason.
I think him so because i think him so.

Julia
And wouldst thou have me cast my love to him’

Lucetta
Ay, if you thought your love not cast away.

Julia
Why he of all the rest, hath never moved me.

Lucetta
Yet he of all the rest, i think best loves ye.

Julia
His love speaking shows his love but small.

Lucetta
Fire that’s closest kept burns most of all.

Julia
They do not love least that let men know their love.

Lucetta
Oh, the love least that let men know their love.

Julia
I would i knew his mind.

(music. Proteus enters right on
Third level. He sings passionately
To julia)
