Elizabethan drama

Enter TILBURINA stark mad in white satin, and her CONFIDANT stark mad in white linen.

TILBURINA
The wind whistles - the moon rises - see,
They have kill'd my squirrel in his cage:
Is this a grasshopper? - Ha! no, it is my
Whiskerandos - you shall not keep him -
I know you have him in your pocket -
An oyster may be cross'd in love - who says
A whale's a bird? - Ha! did you call, my love?
He's here! he's there! - He's everywhere!
Ah me! he's nowhere!
(Exit.)

Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The Critic
