  • You’ve ungently, Brutus, Stole from my bed: and yesternight, at supper, You suddenly arose, and walk’d about, Musing and sighing, with your arms across; And, when I ask’d you what the matter was, You stared upon me with ungentle looks: I urged you further; then you scratch’d your head, And too impatiently stamp’d with your foot: Yet I insisted, yet you answer’d not; But, with an angry wafture of your hand, Gave sign for me to leave you.
