SECTION 5 english (“Romeo and Juliet”) Act 2, scene 2

LINE 1 Well, do not swear: although I joy in thee, I have no joy of this contract to-night: It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden; Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be Ere one can say ‘It lightens.’ Sweet, good night! This bud of love, by summer’s ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet. Good night, good night! as sweet repose and rest come to thy heart as that within my breast!
LINE 2 What satisfaction canst thou have to-night?
LINE 3 I gave thee mine before thou didst request it: And yet I would it were to give again.
LINE 4 But to be frank, and give it thee again. And yet I wish but for the thing I have: My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.
LINE 5 I hear some noise within; dear love, adieu! Anon, good nurse! Sweet Montague, be true. Stay but a little, I will come again.
