Come, cords, come, nurse;
I'll to my wedding-bed;
And death, not Romeo,
take my maidenhead!"

O, tell me, holy friar,
Where is my lady's lord,
where's Romeo?"

"O, he is even in my mistress' case,
Just in her case! O woful sympathy!
Piteous predicament!
Even so lies she,
Blubbering and weeping,
weeping and blubbering.
Stand up, stand up;
stand, and you be a man:
For Juliet's sake, for her sake
rise and stand;
Why should you fall into so deep an O?"

A glooming peace
this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow,
will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk
of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd,
and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
