I wonder if Titania is awake yet, and if she is, I wonder what the first thing she saw was. Whatever it is, she must be completely in love with it now.
My mistress Titania is in love with a monster. The stupidest one, who played Pyramus in their play, finished his scene and went to sit in the bushes to wait for his next cue. I took that opportunity to stick a donkey’s head on him.
At that exact moment, Titania woke up and immediately fell in love with him, an ass.
This is going even better than I planned. But have you put the love juice from the flower on the eyes of that Athenian, as I asked you to do?
Yes, I found him when he was asleep and the Athenian woman was sleeping near him. When he woke up, he must have seen her.
Here’s the Athenian coming now.
That’s definitely the woman I saw, but it’s not the same man.
Why are you so rude to someone who loves you so much?
I’m only scolding you now, but I should treat you much worse, because I’m afraid you’ve given me good reason to curse you.
You’ve pierced me through the heart with your cruelty, and yet you, the murderer, look as bright and clear as a star in the sky.
The only possibility is that you’ve murdered him. A murderer should look like you do, so pale and grim.
