Come, he hath hid himself among these trees, To be consorted with the humorous night: Blind is his love and best befits the dark.
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.Romeo, that she were, O, that she wereAn open et caetera, thou a poperin pear!Romeo, good night: I'll to my truckle-bed;This field-bed is too cold for me to sleep:Come, shall we go?
then they talk of marrage
lady, by yonder Blessed moon i vow, that tips with silver all these fruit-tree tops-
O swear not by the moon, th'inconstant moon, that monthly changes in her circled orb, lest that thy love prove prove likewise variable.
I pray thee, chide me not. Her I love now Doth grace for grace and love for love allow; the other did not so.
O she Know well thy love did read by rote, that could not spell. But come, young waverer, come, go with me; In one respect I'll thy assistant be: so this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households' rancour to pure love.
Bid her devise some means to come to shrift this afternoon, and there she shall at Friar Laurence' cell be shrived and married. Here is for thy pains.
I will tell her, sir, that you do protest, which, as I take it, is a gentlemanlike offer.
Then hie you hence toFriar Laurence' cell; There stays a husband to make you a wife. Now comes the wanton blood up in your cheeks; They'll be in scarlet straight at any news. Hie you to church; I must another way, to fetch a ladder by which your love must climb a bird's-nest soon when it is dark. i am the drudge, and toil in your daylight, but you shall bear the burden soon at night. Go-I'll to dinner-hie you to the cell.
Hie to high fortune! Honest nurse, farewell.
Conceit, more rich in matter than in words, brags of his substance, not of ornament.nThey are but beggars that can count their worth; but my true love is grown to such excess, i cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.
Come, come with me, and we will make short work; for, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone till holy church incorporate two in one.
