With purple fountaincs issuing from your veines:
Qo paine ofrorture from those bloudie hands,
Throw your mistempered weapons to the groundy,
And hearc the sentence of your moued Princes
Tbrce cioill brawles bred of an ayric word,

Spcake Nephew,were you by when it began:
Ben. Herc were the seruants of your aduersaric
And yours,close fightingere I did approach,
I drew to part them in the instant came
Tybalt,with his sword preparde,
Which as he breach'd defiance to my cares,
He swoong about his head and cut the windes,
Who nothing hurt withall,hift him in fcorne:
While we were enterchauaging thrusts and biowcy
Came more and more and fought on part and part,
Till the Prince came,who parted either part.
Wife. O where is Romeo, lan you bim to day?
Right glad I am, he was not at this fray.
Benno. Madam,an houre before the worshipe Sun,
Peerde forth the golden window of the East,
A troubled minde driuc mcto walke abroad,
Wherc underneath the grouc of Syramour,
That Wetward rootech from this Citic fides
So carly walking did I see your fonne,
Towards him I made, but he was ware ofme,
And stole into thecouert of the wood,
I measuring his affections by my owne,
Which then most sought, where most might not be
Being one too many by my wearie felfe, (found:
Pursued my humor,not pursuing his,
And gladly shunned,who gladly fled from me.
Mounta. Many amorning hach be there bin fecne,
of Romeo and Iuliet.
With teares augmenting the fresh mornings deawe,
Adding to cloudes,more clowdes with his
But all lo foonc,as the alcheering Sunnc,
Should in the fartheft East begin to draw,
The shadi curtaines from Auroras bed,
Away from light steales home my hcauic fome,
And priuarc in his Chamber penines himselfe,
Shuts vp his windowes,locks
faire day-light out,
And makes himselfe an artificiall night:
Blackc and portendous mit this inmor proue,
Vnlesse good counsell may the cause remoue.
Ben, My Noble Vaclc do you know the cause?
Moux. I neither know it, nor can learneof him.
Ben. Have you importunde him by any meanes?
Monu. Bach by my felfe and many other friends,
But he is ownc affections counseller,
Isco himselfe(I will not say how true)
But to himselfc fo fecret and so close,
So farre from sounding and discoueric,
As is the bud bit with an enuious worme,
Ere he can spread his(weere leaues ro cbc ayre,
Or dedicate his bewtic to the fame.
Could we but learne from whence his forrows grow,
We would as willingly giac cure as know.
Benn. See where he comes,so please you step aside,
Ile know his greeuance or be much denide.
Moun. I would thou were so happie by thy ftay,
To heare true ilçift,come Madam lcts away.
Bennol. Good morrow Coufin.
Romeo. Is the day so young?
Ben. But now strooke ninc.
Romeo. Ay meglad houres feeme long
Was that my father that wem hencero filt?
Bem It was:what fadnelle lengthens Komeos houres?
