Monday, my lord. What, rouse thee, man! thy Juliet is alive,
Cap. Monday? ha! ha! Well, Wednesday is too For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead;
soon, There art thou happy: Tybalt would kill thee, O'Thursday let it be; - o' Thursday, tell her, But thou slew'st Tybalt; there art thou happy too : She shall be married to this noble earl : The law, that threaten'd death, becomes thy friend, Will you be ready? do you like this haste ? And turns it to exile ; there art thou happy: We'll keep no great ado; - a friend, or two: A pack of blessings lights upon thy back:
For, hark you, Tybalt being slain so late, Happiness courts thee in her best array ;
It may be thought we held him carelessly, But, like a mis-behav'd and sullen wench,
Being our kinsman, if we revel much : Thou pout'st upon thy fortune and thy love: Therefore we'll have some half a dozen friends, Take heed, take heed, for such die miserable. And there an end. But wliat say you to Thursday ? Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed,
Par. My lord, I would that Thursday were toAscend her chamber, hence and comfort her; But, look, thou stay not till the watch be set, Cap. Well, get you gone: - O'Thursday be it For then thou canst not pass to Mantua ; Where thou shalt live, till we can find a time Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed, To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, Prepare her, wife, against this wedding-day, Beg pardon of the prince, and call thee back Farewell, my lord. — Light to my chamber, ho! With twenty hundred thousand times more joy Afore me, it is so very late, that we Than thou went'st forth in lamentation.
May call it early by and by :- Good night. Go before, nurse : commend me to thy lady;

SCENE V. - Juliet's Chamber.
Enter Romeo and JULIET.
Jul. Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day : My lord, I'll tell my lady you will come.
It was the nightingale, and not the lark, Rom. Do so, and bid my sweet prepare to chide. That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nurse. Here, sir, a ring she bid me give you, sir : Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.
Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate tree : Hie you, make haste, for it grows very late.
Rom. It was the lark, the herald of the morn, Rom. How well my comfort is reviv'd by this !
No nightingale : look, love, what envious streaks Fri. Go hence: Good night: and here stands all Do lace the severing clouds in yonder east :
Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day your state 5; Either be gone before the watch be set,
Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops; Or by the break of day disguis'd from hence:
I must be gone and live, or stay and die. Sojourn in Mantua ; I'll find out your man,
Jul. Yon light is not day-light, I know it, I: And he shall signify from time to time
It is some meteor that the sun exhales, Every good hap to you, that chances here:
To be to thee this night a torch-bearer,
And light thee on thy way to Mantua :
Rom. Let me be ta'en, let me be put to death; Farewell.
I am content, so thou wilt have it so.
I'll say, yon grey is not the morning's eye,
'Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia's brow ! 8
Nor that is not the lark, whose notes do beat
The vaulty heaven so high above our heads :
Come, death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so. That we have had no time to move our daughter :
How is't my soul ? let's talk, it is not day.
Jul. It is, it is, hie hence, be gone, away;
It is the lark that sings so out of tune, 'Tis very late, she'll not come down to-night:
Straining harsh discords, and unpleasing sharps. I promise you, but for your company,
Some say, the lark makes sweet division'; I would have been a-bed an hour ago.
This doth not so, for she divideth us : Par. These times of woe afford no time to woo; o, now I would they had changed voices too ;
Some say, the lark and loathed toad change eyes ; Madam, good night; commend me to your daughter. 10, now be gone; more light and light it grows. La. Cap. I will, and know her mind early to

That thou expect'st not, nor I look'd not for. That is renown'd for faith; Be fickle, fortune : Jul. Madam, in happy time, what day is that? For then, I hope, thou wilt not keep him long, La. Cap. Marry, my child, early next Thursday But send him back.

Jul. If I do so, it will be of more price, To marry Paris: Wednesday is to-morrow; Being spoke behind your back, than to your face. To-morrow night look that thou lie alone,
Par. Poor soul, thy face is much abus'd with tears. Let not thy nurse lie with thee in thy chamber.
Jul. The tears have got small victory by that; Take thou this phial, being then in bed, For it was bad enough, before their spite.
And this distilled liquor drink thou off: Par. Thou wrong'st it, more than tears, with that when, presently, through all thy veins shall run report.

Fri. Ah, Juliet, I already know thy grief; Where all the kindred of the Capulets lie.
Jul. Tell me not, friar, that thou hear'st of this, Will watch thy waking, and that very night
Shall Romeo bear thee hence to Mantua.
If no inconstant toy, nor womanish fear, And with this knife I'll help it presently.
Abate thy valour in the acting it. Love join'd my heart and Romeo's, thou our hands; Jul. Give me, O give me! tell me not of fear. And ere this hand, by thee to Romeo seal'd, Fri. Hold; get you gone, be strong and prosperous Shall be the label to another deed,
