Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour
FTLN 0002 Draws on apace. Four happy days bring in
FTLN 0003 Another moon. But, O, methinks how slow
FTLN 0004 This old moon editorial emendationwanes!editorial emendation She lingers my desires
FTLN 00055 Like to a stepdame or a dowager
FTLN 0006 Long withering out a young man’s revenue.

Compares the moon to a stepmother eating up a stepson's inheritance. Hurry up and die, moon, because the new moon brings the par-tay!
