If it be well to droop and pine and mope, To sigh 'Oh, Ida! Ida!' all day
long, Then Prince Hilarion is very well. I can tell a woman's age in half a minute--and I do.
Must we, till then, in prison cell be thrust? Enter the Princess, reading.
Enter the 'Daughters of the Plough,' bearing luncheon. The Gate yields. Hildebrand and Soldiers rush in.
Though I am but a girl, Defiance thus I hurl. Where are your rifles, pray?
