                                                     no pudo el dolor conmigo,                                   
                                                     lo que el pesar de auer dado                                  1235
                                                     causa a que en su deshonor                                  
                                                     se hablasse de doña Flor,                                     
                                                     bien lo mostrò mi cuydado,                                  
                                                     pues primero la auisè                                            
                                                     que no hiziesse nouedad,                                      1240

                                                     recibe.                                                                   
Encin.                                          Señor, es fina?                                                      
D. Fer.                                         No lo parece?                                                       
Encin.                                          En el pobre                                                            1465
                                                     passa el oro por alquimia.                                     
D. Fer.                                         Si quien me la dio supieras,                                  
                                                     su valor no dudarias.                                            
Encin.                                          Fue muger?                                                           
D. Fer.                                         No, sino vn hombre,                                              1470
                                                     a quien deuo la vida.                                            
Encin.                                          Como, señor?                                                       
D. Fer.                                         Mas espacio                                                          
                                                     quiere el caso; agora mira,                                    
                                                     si puedo, porque me importa,                                1475
                                                     hablar a Flor.                                                        
Encin.                                          No dezias                                                             
                                                     que renunciauas su amor?                                     
D. Fer.                                         Y otra vez lo digo, Encinas;                                 
                                                     otro es mi intento.                                                 1480
Encin.                                          Pues entra;                                                            
                                                     que agora no ay quien lo impida,                         
                                                     que no tienen mas criado                                      
                                                     que a mi; sal presto, y euita

                                                     que yo me pongo en espia.                                   
Vase.
A parte.
D. Fer.                                         Ardiendo y temblando llego                                
                                                     a mi adorada enemiga;                                         
                                                     que si mis zelos me enojan,                                  
                                                     su enojo me atemoriza.                                          1490
Sale doña Flor a parte.
Flor.                                             Es possible que el Marques                                  
                                                     ni me vea ni me escriua?                                       
                                                     cielos, se venga zeloso?                                        
                                                     o agrauiado se retira?                                           
                                                     que es esto? quien es?                                           1495
D. Fer.                                         Es, Flor,                                                                
                                                     quien de lo que ser solia                                       
                                                     solo tiene la memoria,                                           
                                                     porque de infierno le sirua.                                   
Flor.                                             Es don Fernando?                                                 1500
D. Fer.                                         Hasta agora,                                                         
                                                     cruel no me conocias?                                          
                                                     tan del todo tu mudança                                      
                                                     de mi firmeza te oluida?                                       
                                                     Es possible que en vn pecho                                  1505
                                                     a quien noble sangre anima,                                 
                                                     ya que la mudança cupo,                                      
                                                     quepa tambien la mentira?                                    
                                                     Falsa, porque me engañaste?                                
                                                     porque el infelice dia                                             1510
                                                     que tras de tantos de ausencia                              
                                                     lleguè mas firme a tu vista.                                   
                                                     No me diste desengaños?                                     
                                                     que remedian, si lastiman,                                    
                                                     aprouechan, aunque ofenden,                               1515
                                                     y aunque atormentan obligan.                              
                                                     Hizieraslo, si me quieres,                                      
                                                     porque guardasse la vida;                                     
                                                     y sino, porque dexassen                                       
                                                     de cansarte mis porfias,                                         1520
                                                     fue mas cordura obligarme                                   
                                                     con tus palabras fingidas                                      
                                                     al peligro en que me viste,                                    
                                                     y a la desgracia que miras?                                   
                                                     Mas como fueras ingrata?                                     1525
                                                     como fueras enemiga?                                          
                                                     como muger, sino fueras                                      
                                                     contraria a la razon misma?                                  
Flor.                                             Basta, Don Fernando, basta,                                
                                                     que te engañas, si imaginas,                                  1530
                                                     anticipando tus quexas,                                        
                                                     cerrar el passo a las mias.                                      
                                                     Si tu me cumplieras, falso,                                   
                                                     la palabra prometida,                                            
                                                     mi fama y tu amor gozaran                                    1535
                                                     mas quietos y dulces dias.                                    
                                                     El secreto me juraste,                                           
                                                     y al primer lance, perdida                                     
                                                     o la memoria, o la fe,                                            
                                                     me ofendes, y lo publicas?                                    1540
D. Fer.                                         Yo lo he publicado?                                             
Flor.                                             Si;                                                                         
                                                     que lo mismo es que lo digan                               
                                                     las obras, que las palabras;                                    
                                                     tu lengua, aleue, podia                                          1545
                                                     dezir mas claro tu amor,                                       
                                                     que lo dixo vengatiua                                           
                                                     tu espada, locos tus zelos,                                    
                                                     precipitadas tus yras?                                           
D. Fer.                                         Bien por Dios; lo que hize yo                                1550
                                                     para obligar, desobliga?                                        
                                                     para disculpar las tuyas,                                       
                                                     finges, falsa, culpas mias?                                    
                                                     Saquè la espada callando,                                    
                                                     puse a peligro la vida,                                            1555
                                                     por no descubrirme, a quien                                 
                                                     conocerme pretendia,                                           
                                                     solo por guardarte assi                                          
                                                     el secreto, y tu lo aplicas                                      
                                                     a lo contrario? que clara                                        1560
                                                     se conoce tu malicia!                                            
Flor.                                             Euitaras el peligro,                                                
                                                     pues la resistencia vias                                          
                                                     que a mayor publicidad                                        
                                                     daua ocasion tan precisa;                                       1565
                                                     dexaras el puesto, huyeras;                                   
                                                     que pues no te conocian,                                      
                                                     nada perdieras en ello.                                          
D. Fer.                                         Sin duda mi sangre oluidas;                                 
                                                     ser secreto prometi;                                               1570
                                                     no couarde, que no auia                                       
                                                     de acetar, quien nacio noble,                                
                                                     cosas que lo contradigan:                                     
                                                     no importa no conocerme;                                    
                                                     que yo a mi me conocia;                                        1575
                                                     y la misma sangre noble                                       
                                                     es Fiscal contra si misma.                                     
                                                     Y si tu me conociste,                                            
                                                     que mas ocasion querias?                                     
                                                     ay mas mundo para mi?                                         1580
                                                     ay mas honra? ay mas estima?                              
Flor.                                             Conmigo nada perdieras,                                     
                                                     si por mi opinion lo hazias.                                   
D. Fer.                                         Conocida era la fuga,                                           
                                                     la intencion no conocida:                                      1585
                                                     y accion, que es mala por si,                                 
                                                     en duda la aplicarias                                             
                                                     a lo peor, claro està,                                              
                                                     que conozco mi desdicha.                                    
                                                     Y dada ya la sospecha                                           1590
                                                     de que tu amor merecia,                                       
                                                     quien contigo a tu ventana                                   
                                                     de noche hablaua, no miras                                  
                                                     que a nadie infamara mas,                                    
                                                     huyendo yo, que a ti misma;                                 1595
                                                     pues con causa te acusaran                                   
                                                     de que a vn couarde querias?                               
                                                     Ves mi razon? ves tu afrenta?                              
                                                     ves como quedas vencida?                                   
                                                     ves como de culpas tuyas                                      1600
                                                     son falsas, las penas mias?                                    
                                                     tus engaños cometieron                                        
                                                     el delito que me aplicas;                                       
                                                     que a no tener otro amante,                                  
                                                     y a no dezir, fementida,                                        1605
                                                     que eras quien fuyste, no huuiera

                                                     que nadie, sin que le admitan,                               1610
                                                     zeloso guarda la calle,                                          
                                                     furioso arriesga la vida.                                        
Flor.                                             Desdeñado vn poderoso                                      
                                                     conuierte el amor en yra:

                                                     liuiana, aleue, fingida,                                          
                                                     mudable, tirana, fiera                                           
                                                     tigre Hircana, y sierpe Libia,                                 1620

                                                     ya que el ser quien soy me priua                           
                                                     de romper con publicarlas                                    
                                                     la palabra prometida                                              1630

A parte.
Marq.                                           Ay Flor, bien saben los cielos

                                                     Señora, lo que pedis,                                            
                                                     a ser dificil lo haria:                                              
                                                     mas es por desdicha mia                                       
                                                     impossible.                                                             1735
Ana.                                             Que dezis?                                                            
Marq.                                           Digo.                                                                    
Salen don Diego y Encinas desde el paño.
Encin.                                          Pues, señor, assi te cuelas?                                   
D. Die.                                         Ya a la impaciencia                                              
                                                     se rindiò la resistencia;                                          1740
                                                     mas el Marques està aqui.                                     
Encin.                                          En canta la piedra has dado.                                
D. Die.                                         Quedo; pues no me han sentido,                          
                                                     quiero aplicar el oydo;                                          
                                                     que a zelos toca el cuydado.                                 1745
Marq.                                           Segun esto no os espante

Marq.                                           Tratarme agora de amor,                                      
                                                     es ablandar vn diamante.                                       1750
Ana.                                             Acabad; cessen enojos,                                        
                                                     no puedan tanto los zelos.                                    
A parte.
D. Die.                                         Por Dios que le ruega, cielos,                               
                                                     tal vienen a ver mis ojos!                                      
Marq.                                           Doña Ana, en vano os cansays.                             1755
Ana.                                             Rogado os endureceys?                                       
                                                     no a la sangre que teneys,                                     
                                                     la condicion conformays.                                     
D. Die.                                         Ello es cierto.                                                        
Marq.                                           Lo que os pido                                                      1760
                                                     es, que no me trateys mas                                     
                                                     de essa materia.                                                    
Ana.                                             Iamas                                                                    
                                                     me huuiera yo persuadido,                                   
                                                     sino lo llegara a ver,                                               1765
                                                     y aun lo dudo, aunque lo toco,                             
                                                     que con vos puedan tan poco

                                                     No dareys, Marques, lugar                                   
                                                     a las disculpas si quiera?                                        1770
Yn.                                               Esto es justo.                                                        
Marq.                                           Yo lo hiziera,                                                        
                                                     si me pudiera mudar.                                            
Ana.                                             Maldiga Dios a don Diego,                                  
                                                     que a vna determinacion                                       1775
                                                     tan cruel dio la ocasion.                                        
Encin.                                          Oyes esto, señor?                                                 
D. Die.                                         Luego

                                                     la trata con tal rigor?                                             1780
                                                     aora bien, ya que el amor                                      
                                                     no ayuda mis desuarios,                                       
                                                     a vn engaño me apercibo,                                     
                                                     con que, pues no soy dichoso,                              
                                                     lo que no alcanço amoroso,                                   1785
                                                     alcançarè vengatiuo.                                             
                                                     Aqui me importa que des

                                                     me dexa, que facil es;                                           
                                                     que pues hasta aqui por tuyo                                
                                                     no me conocen, saldrè                                          
                                                     con el, y assi passarè                                             
                                                     plaça de criado suyo.                                             1795
D. Die.                                         Pues al punto que el se ausente,

                                                     que el Marques le ofrece mas,                              
                                                     porque esta noche le espere                                  
                                                     a la puerta de doña Ana;                                       1805
                                                     que a deshora quiere hablalle,                              
                                                     y el secreto has de encargalle.                              
Encin.                                          No serà tu industria vana

                                                     y aduertid que os està bien.                                  
D. Ped.                                        Mas parece que os conuiene                                  1925
                                                     a vos, segun me apretays.                                     
Marq.                                           En esso no os engañays;                                       
                                                     que quien es mi amigo, tiene,                               
                                                     don Pedro, en mi coraçon                                    
                                                     tanta parte, que desseo                                          1930
                                                     como propio, lo que veo                                       
                                                     que ha de aumentar su opinion.                            
D. Ped.                                        Yo agradezco la amistad;                                     
                                                     pero os aduierto, Marques,                                   
                                                     que para mi no lo es.                                              1935
Marq.                                           O quien pudiera! mirad                                        
                                                     que os aconsejo.                                                   
D. Ped.                                        No hableys                                                           
                                                     mysterioso; en su porfia                                       
A parte.
                                                     crece la sospecha mia:                                           1940
                                                     y para que no os canseys,                                     
                                                     por vltimo desengaño,                                          
                                                     digo que estoy satisfecho                                     
                                                     de que traçays mi prouecho;                                 
                                                     pero yo quiero mi daño.                                        1945
A parte.
Marq.                                           Quanto resiste obstinado,                                     
                                                     tanto piadoso desseo                                            
                                                     remedialle; porque veo                                         
                                                     que yerra de enamorado.                                      
D. Ped.                                        Mandays otra cosa?                                               1950
Marq.                                           En esto                                                                 
                                                     pido solo que os mireys;                                       
                                                     y a Dios.                                                               
A parte.
D. Ped.                                        Pues vos me quereys                                            
                                                     quitar del dichoso puesto,                                     1955
                                                     en que con el Rey estoy,                                      
                                                     yo del vuestro os quitarè.                                     
A parte.
Marq.                                           De la muerte os librarè,                                        
                                                     o no serè yo quien soy.
