                     <div class="line">My conscience first received a tenderness,</div>

                     <div class="line">Yea, with a splitting power, and made to tremble</div>

                     <div class="line">That many mazed considerings did throng</div>
                     <div class="line">And press'd in with this caution. First, methought</div>
                     <div class="line">I stood not in the smile of heaven; who had</div>
                     <div class="line">Commanded nature, that my lady's womb,</div>
                     <div class="line">If it conceived a male child by me, should</div>

                     <div class="line">This world had air'd them: hence I took a thought,</div>
                     <div class="line">This was a judgment on me; that my kingdom,</div>
                     <div class="line">Well worthy the best heir o' the world, should not</div>
                     <div class="line">Be gladded in't by me: then follows, that</div>
                     <div class="line">I weigh'd the danger which my realms stood in</div>
                     <div class="line">By this my issue's fail; and that gave to me</div>
                     <div class="line">Many a groaning throe. Thus hulling in</div>
                     <div class="line">The wild sea of my conscience, I did steer</div>
                     <div class="line">Toward this remedy, whereupon we are</div>

vizards on their faces; branches of bays or palm in
their hands. They first congee unto her, then
dance; and, at certain changes, the first two hold
a spare garland over her head; at which the other
four make reverent curtsies; then the two that held
the garland deliver the same to the other next two,
who observe the same order in their changes, and
holding the garland over her head: which done,
they deliver the same garland to the last two, who
