ACT V - SCENE IV. Country near Birnam wood.
MALCOLM
1    Cousins, I hope the days are near at hand
2    That chambers will be safe.
MENTEITH
3    We doubt it nothing.
SIWARD
4    What wood is this before us?
MENTEITH
5    The wood of Birnam.
MALCOLM
6    Let every soldier hew him down a bough
7    And bear't before him: thereby shall we shadow
8    The numbers of our host and make discovery
9    Err in report of us.
Soldiers
10   It shall be done.
SIWARD
11   We learn no other but the confident tyrant
12   Keeps still in Dunsinane, and will endure
13   Our setting down before 't.
MALCOLM
14   'Tis his main hope:
15   For where there is advantage to be given,
16   Both more and less have given him the revolt,
17   And none serve with him but constrained things
18   Whose hearts are absent too.
MACDUFF
19   Let our just censures
20   Attend the true event, and put we on
21   Industrious soldiership.
SIWARD
22   The time approaches
23   That will with due decision make us know
24   What we shall say we have and what we owe.
25   Thoughts speculative their unsure hopes relate,
26   But certain issue strokes must arbitrate:
27   Towards which advance the war.
Exeunt, marching
