ULIET. Till thou he gone ? it is not yet near day:
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
That pierced te feurful hollow of thine ear;
Nightly she sings on yond pomegranate-tree :
Beliere me, love, it was the nighlingale."
ROMEO, ** It was the lark, the herald of the morn,
No nightingale: look, love, what envious streaks
Do lace the serering clouds in yonder east :
Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day
Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain lops:
I must be gone and live, or stay und die w..
Farewell, farewell! one kiss and I'll descend.'
