No my darling, I'd rather stain my muscles and break my back than to rest while you work.
Please, I beg you, don't work so hard. Put the logs down and rest a while. Sit I'll carry the logs.
No, noble mistress, I'm as fresh as morning when you're near me, even at night.
I'd be as right for the job as you are and I'd do it more easily, since I'd have good will on my side.You look tired.
I beg you to tell me your name so I can use it in my prayers.
Miranda-Oh father I've disobeyed you by telling him that.
Miranda-the very name means 'admired'! You are indeed admired, more than anything else in the world!
I’ve never met any men besides you and my father. I have no idea what people look like in other places, but I swear by my modesty, which I value above everything else, that I’d never want any companion in the world but you.
You’re perfect, without a rival in the world, made up of the best qualities of every creature.
The second I saw you, my heart rushed to serve you and be your slave, so here I am now, a patient log-man.
Oh heaven, oh earth, witness what I’m about to say, and reward me if I tell the truth! If I’m lying, then
Do you love me?
You’ll be my wife, dearest, and I’ll serve you forever.
Yes, with a heart more eager to bear a husband’s responsibilities than a slave ever wanted freedom. Take my hand, darling.
Will you be my husband, then?
Here’s my hand, and my heart. And now goodbye. I’ll see you again in half an hour
