Alarums, excursions. Enter the Bastard, with

Austria's head


BASTARD

Now, by my life, this day grows wondrous hot.

Some airy devil hovers in the sky

And pours down mischief. Austria's head lie there,

While Philip breathes.
breathe (v.) 2 catch breath, pause, rest

Enter King John, Arthur, and Hubert
make up (v.) 1 advance to the front, move forward, press on


KING JOHN

Hubert, keep this boy. Philip, make up!

My mother is assailed in our tent,

And ta'en, I fear.


BASTARD

                         My lord, I rescued her;

Her highness is in safety, fear you not.

But on, my liege! For very little pains

Will bring this labour to an happy end.

Exeunt
