, take care it would come to the ears of my darling Nu!

_Dall Glic:_ It is said by himself and the heavens that in a year from this day the King's daughter will be brought away and devoured by a scaly Green Dragon that will come from the North of the World.

_Queen:_ A Dragon! I thought you were talking of some danger. I wouldn't give in to dragons. I never saw one. I'm not in dread of beasts unless it might be a mouse in the night-time!

_King:_ Put it out of mind. It is likely anyway that the world will soon be ended the way it is.

_Queen: I_ will send and search out this astrologer and will question him.

_Dall Glic_: You have not far to search. He is outside at the kitchen door at this minute, and as if questioning after something, and it a half-score and seven years since I knew him to come out of his cave.

_King_: Do not! He might waken up the Dragon and put him in mind of the girl, for to make his own foretelling come true.

_Nurse_: Ah, such a thing cannot be! The poor innocent child!
