King John: Ay marry, now my soul hath elbow room,/ It would not out at windows, nor at doors,/ There is so hot a summer in my bosom,/ That all my bowels crumble up to dust:/ I am a scribbled form drawn with a pen/ Upon a parchment, and against this fire/ Do I shrink up.
Prince Henry: How fares your Majesty?
King John: Poison'd, ill fare: dead, forsook, cast off,/ And none of you will bid the winter come/ To thrust his icy fingers in my maw;/ Nor let my kingdom's rivers take their course/ Through my burn'd bosom: nor entreat the North/ To make his bleak winds kiss my parched lips,/ And comfort me with cold. I do not ask you much,/ I beg cold comfort: and you are so straight/ And so ungrateful, you deny me that.
