‘A Platform. Desdemona, Othello, Jago, Cassio, Roderigo, Emilia, &c.’
Oth. O my fair warriour.
Des. My dear Othello!
Oth. It gives me wonder great as my content, / To see you here before me. O my soul’s joy! / If after every tempest comes such calmness, / May the winds blow till they have waken’d death!
