Lysistrata   



MYRRHINE


Well and good! When that's done, I will come home. Till then, I am


bound by an oath.


CINESIAS


At any rate, lie with me for a little while.


MYRRHINE


No, no, no! (she hesitates) but just the same I can't say I


don't love you.


CINESIAS


You love me? Then why refuse to lie with me, my little girl, my


sweet Myrrhine?


MYRRHINE (pretending to be shocked)


You must be joking! What, before the child!


CINESIAS (to the slave)


Manes, carry the lad home. There, you see, the child is gone;


there's nothing to hinder us; won't you lie down now?


MYRRHINE


But, miserable man, where, where?


CINESIAS


In the cave of Pan; nothing could be better.


MYRRHINE
