(A mental hospital in London) (Tom is with a blind man with a violin, a cripple soldier, a man with a telescope and three old witches. On the wall, a straw mattress)
TOM Prepare yourselves, ye heroic shades. Wash you and make you clean. Anoint your limbs with oil, put on your wedding garments and crown your heads with flowers. Let music strike. Venus, queen of love, will visit her unworthy Adonis.
