Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour

Draws on apace. Four happy days bring in

Another moon. But oh, methinks how slow

This old moon wanes! She lingers my desires,

Like to a stepdame or a dowager

Long withering out a young man’s revenue.

The subject is an impatient bridegroom waiting for his wedding day......... this is what it's all about. Young impatient love and more than one couple.
