Can I go forward when my heart is here? Turn back, dull earth, and find thy center out.
He ran this way, and leapt this orchard wall. Call, good Mercutio
Romeo! my cousin Romeo! Romeo!
And, on my life, hath stol´n him home to bed.
A lane by the wall of Capulet´s orchard( Enter Romeo alone )
Nay, I´ll conjure too. Romeo! humors! madman! passion! lover! Appear thou in the likeness of a sigh; Speak but one rhyme, and I am satisfied! Cry but "Ay me!" pronounce but "love" and "dove" ; Speak to my gossip Venus one fair word, One nickname for her purblind son and heir, Young Adam Cupid, he that shot so trim When King Cophetua loved the beggar maid! He heareth not, he stirreth not, he moveth not; The ape is dead, and I must conjure him. I conjure thee by Rosaline´s bright eyes, By her high forehead and her scarlet lip, By her fine foot, straight leg, and quivering thigh, And the demesnes that there adjacent lie, That in thy likeness thou appear to us!
( Climbs the wall and leaps down within it )
An if he hear thee, thou wilt anger him.
This cannot anger him. 'Twould To raise a spirit in his mistress' circle Of some strange nature, letting it there stand Till she had laid it and conjured it down. That were some spite; my invocation Is fair and honest and in his mistress' name anger I conjure only but to raise up him.
( Enter Benvolio with Mercutio )
If love be blind, love cannot hit the mark. Now will he sit under a medlar tree And wish his mistress were that kind of fruit As maids call medlars when they laugh alone. Oh, Romeo, that she were, O, that she were An open et cetera, thou a pop’rin pear! Romeo, good night. I'll to my truckle bed; This field-bed is too cold for me to sleep. Come, shall we go?
( Mercutio calls for Romeo while also mocking his poetic speech. )
( They tried again but couldn't. )
Come, he hath hid himself among these trees To be consorted with the humorous night. Blind is his love, and best befits the dark.
( After Romeo doesn't show up, they decide to give up and go home. )
Go then, for ´tis in vain To seek him here that means not to be found.
