Explanation of Puck's Solilquoy
Puck’s Soliloquy Scene 5 Act 1 line 423-438
423 If we shadows have offended,
424 Think but this, and all is mended,
425 That you have but slumber'd here
426 While these visions did appear.
427 And this weak and idle theme,
428 No more yielding but a dream,
429 Gentles, do not reprehend:
430 if you pardon, we will mend:
431 And, as I am an honest Puck,
432 If we have unearned luck
433 Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
434 We will make amends ere long;
435 Else the Puck a liar call;
436 So, good night unto you all.
437 Give me your hands, if we be friends,438 And Robin shall restore amends.
