Isabel. This is the bridal eve, and yet thy lady--/ Look how she sits on yonder couch, her head/ Bent like a snow drop, her white clasped hands/ Listlessly hanging on her knee, as though/ No pulse beats in them. Margaret. Look%/ The very casket that last night he laid/ At Helen's feet, still at her feet it lies,/ Neglected, overthrown. [P. 14.]
