Dialogue Between Hamlet And His Conscience

- She's- She's in the riverbed, in algae
And weeds...She went to them
To sleep, - but there's no sleep there, either!
- But she's the one I loved
Like forty thousand brothers
Couldn't love!
- Hamlet!
She's in the riverbed, in algae:
Algae! . . And her last garland
Has surfaced in the logs by the bank...
- But she's the one I loved
Like forty thousand...
- Less,
Even so, than a single lover.
She's in the riverbed, in algae.
- But she's the one -

I loved??

She is in the riverbed in algae. Intriguing conceptualization. Liked it.
This is so beautiful! Hamlet is my favorite Shakespearean play. You captured his character very well :)
