To-night is ripe for pleasure, and indeed,
I would be merry as beseems a host
Who finds a gracious and unlooked-for guest
Waiting to greet him. [Takes up a lute.]
But what is this, my lord?

Oh! play, sweet Prince. And, if I am too bold,
Pardon, but play.
GUIDO. I will not play to-night.
Some other night, Simone.
[To Bianca] You and I
