Mercutio, Romeo and Benvolio are heading to the Capulets party (Benvolio on the right, Romeo in the middle, Mercutio on the left)
and so did I
I dremnt a dream tonight
that dreamers often lie
well, what was yours?
oh, then I see you have been with Queen Mab
In bed asleep while they do dream things true
who is Queen Mab?
She is the fairy's midwife, she is no bigger than an agate stone, she rides over men's noses as they lie sleeping. In her royal wagon she rides every night through the brains of lovers and makes them dream about love. She rides over lawyers' fingers, and right away, they dream about their fees. She rides over ladies' lips, and they immediately dream of kisses. Sometimes she rides over a soldier’s neck, and he dreams of cutting the throats of foreign enemies, of breaking down walls. This is she.
Mercutio, enough! You're talking nonscence
True, I talk of dreams. Dreams are nothing but silly imagination, as thin as air, and less predictable than the wind.
