He heareth not, he stirreth not, he moveth not;
Ben. An if he hear thee, thou wilt anger him.
Mer. This cannot anger him : 'twould anger him 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, I conjure only but to raise up him. Ben. Come, he hath hid himself among those
trees, To be consorted with the humorous 2 night : Blind is his love, and best befits the dark.
Mer. 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.O, Romeo, that she were, ah, that she were An open et cætera, thou a poprin pear! Romeo, good night :-I'll to my truckle-bed; 3 This field-bed is too cold for me to sleep.
1 This word, in Shakspeare's time, was used as an expression of tenderness. 2 For humid.
3 A bed that runs on wheels.
Come, shall we go?
Go, then; for 'tis in vain
Ro. He jests at scars, that never felt a wound.
[Juliet appears above, at a window. But, soft! what light through yonder window
breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun!Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she : Be not her maid, since she is envious ; Her vestal livery is but sick and green, And none but fools do wear it: cast it off. It is my lady; 0, it is my love! ! 0, that she knew she were !She speaks, yet she says nothing : what of that? Her eye discourses; I will answer it. I am too bold; 'tis not to me she speaks : Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, Having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres till they return. What if her eyes were there, they in her head ? The brightness of her cheek would shame those
She speaks :
As daylight doth a lamp; her eye in heaven
Romeo ? Deny thy father, and refuse thy name: Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet. Ro. Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this ?
[aside. Ju. 'Tis but thy name that is my enemy; Thou art thyself though, not a Montague. What’s Montague ? it is nor hand, nor foot, Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part Belonging to a man. 0, be some other name!

Ju. My ears have not yet drunk a hundred words Of that tongue's utterance, yet I know the sound : Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague ?
Ro. Neither, fair saint, if either thee dislike.
my kinsmen find thee here. Ro. With love's light wings did I o'erperch these
walls; For stony limits cannot hold love out: And what love can do, that dares love attempt;
i Owns, possesses.
? Do off, lay aside.

Ju. If they do see thee, they will murder thee.
Ro. Alack! there lies more peril in thine eye, Than twenty of their swords : look thou but sweet, And I am proof against their enmity. Ju. I would not for the world, they saw thee
