ROMEO AND JULIET

From Capulet’s garden Romeo overhears Juliet express her love for him. When he answers her, they acknowledge their love and their desire to be married.

Scene2

Romeo comes forward.

Enter Juliet above.

Romeo
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun.

Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon.
Be not her maid since she is envious.

It is my lady. O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!

JULIET

Hey, I am here.

ROMEO
O, speak again, bright angel.
As glorious to this night.

JULIET

O Romeo, Romeo, why are you Romeo?
Deny your father and refuse your name,
Or, if you wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And no longer be a Capulet.

ROMEO
Shall I hear more

JULIET

yes but your name that is my enemy.
You art yourself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face. O, be some other name
Belonging to a man.

ROMEO

 I take you at your word.
Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized.

I never will be Romeo.
