The Tragedie of Romeo and Iuliet.
[2380]
This is as't should be, let me see the County: I marrie go I say, and fetch him hither. Now afore God, this reueren'd holy Frier, All our whole Cittie is much bound to him.
Iul. Nurse will you goe with me into my Closet,
[2385]
To helpe me sort such needfull ornaments, As you thinke fit to furnish me to morrow?
Mo. No not till Thursday, there's time inough. Fa. Go Nurse, go with her, Weele to Church to morrow. Exeunt Iuliet and Nurse. Mo.
[2390]
We shall be short in our prouision, 'Tis now neere night.
Fa. Tush, I will stirre about, And all things shall be well, I warrant thee wife: Go thou to Iuliet, helpe to decke vp her,
[2395]
Ile not to bed to night, let me alone: Ile play the huswife for this once. What ho? They are all forth, well I will walke my selfe To Countie Paris, to prepare him vp Against to morrow, my heart is wondrous light,
[2400]
Since this same way‑ward Gyrle is so reclaim'd.
Exeunt Father and Mother.
[Act 4, Scene 3] Enter Iuliet and Nurse. Iul. I those attires are best, but gentle Nurse I pray thee leaue me to my selfe to night: For I haue need of many Orysons, To moue the heauens to smile vpon my state,
[2405]
Which well thou know'st, is crosse and full of sin.
Enter Mother. Mo. What are you busie ho? need you my help? Iul. No Madam, we haue cul'd such necessaries As are behoouefull for our state to morrow: So please you, let me now be left alone;
[2410]
And let the Nurse this night sit vp with you, For I am sure, you haue your hands full all, In this so sudden businesse.
Mo. Goodnight. Get thee to bed and rest, for thou hast need. Exeunt. Iul.
[2415]
Farewell: God knowes when we shall meete againe. I haue a faint cold feare thrills through my veines, That almost freezes vp the heate of fire: Ile call them backe againe to comfort me.
[2420]
Nurse, what should she do here? My dismall Sceane, I needs must act alone: Come Viall, what if this mixture do not worke at all? Shall I be married then to morrow morning? No, no, this shall forbid it. Lie thou there,
[2425]
What if it be a poyson which the Frier Subtilly hath ministred to haue me dead, Least in this marriage he should be dishonour'd, Because he married me before to Romeo? I feare it is, and yet me thinkes it should not,
[2430]
For he hath still beene tried a holy man. How, if when I am laid into the Tombe, I wake before the time that Romeo Come to redeeme me? There's a fearefull point: Shall I not then be stifled in the Vault?
[2435]
To whose foule mouth no healthsome ayre breaths in, And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes. Or if I liue, is it not very like, The horrible conceit of death and night, Together with the terror of the place,
[2440]
As in a Vaulte, an ancient receptacle,

Where for these many hundred yeeres the bones Of all my buried Auncestors are packt, Where bloody Tybalt, yet but greene in earth, Lies festring in his shrow'd, where as they say,
[2445]
At some houres in the night, Spirits resort: Alacke, alacke, is it not like that I So early waking, what with loathsome smels, And shrikes like Mandrakes torne out of the earth, That liuing mortalls hearing them, run mad.
[2450]
O if I wake, shall I not be distraught, Inuironed with all these hidious feares, And madly play with my forefathers ioynts? And plucke the mangled Tybalt from his shrow'd? And in this rage, with some great kinsmans bone,
[2455]
As (with a club) dash out my desperate braines. O looke, me thinks I see my Cozins Ghost, Seeking out Romeo that did spit his body Vpon my Rapiers point: stay Tybalt, stay; Romeo, Romeo, Romeo, here's drinke: I drinke to thee.
[Act 4, Scene 4] Enter Lady of the house, and Nurse. Lady.
[2460]
Hold, Take these keies, and fetch more spices Nurse.
Nur. They call for Dates and Quinces in the Pastrie. Enter old Capulet. Cap. Come, stir stir stir, The second Cocke hath Crow'd,
[2465]
The Curphew Bell hath rung, 'tis three a clocke: Looke to the bakte meates, good Angelica, Spare not for cost.
Nur. Go you Cot‑queane, go, Get you to bed, faith youle be sicke to morrow
[2470]
For this nights watching.
Cap. No not a whit: what? I haue watcht ere now All night for lesse cause, and nere beene sicke. La. I you haue bin a Mouse‑hunt in your time, But I will watch you from such watching now. Exit Lady and Nurse. Cap.
[2475]
A iealous hood, a iealous hood, Now fellow, what there?
Enter three or foure with spits, and logs, and baskets. Fel. Things for the Cooke sir, but I know not what. Cap. Make hast, make hast, sirrah, fetch drier Logs. Call Peter, he will shew thee where they are. Fel.
[2480]
I haue a head sir, that will find out logs, And neuer trouble Peter for the matter.
Cap. Masse and well said, a merrie horson, ha, Thou shalt be loggerhead; good Father, 'tis day. Play Musicke The Countie will be here with Musicke straight,
[2485]
For so he said he would, I heare him neere, Nurse, wife, what ho? what Nurse I say? Enter Nurse. Go waken Iuliet, go and trim her vp, Ile go and chat with Paris: hie, make hast, Make hast, the Bridegroome, he is come already:
[2490]
Make hast I say.
[Act 4, Scene 5] Nur. Mistris, what Mistris? Iuliet? Fast I warrant her she. Why Lambe, why Lady ? fie you sluggabed, Why Loue I say ? Madam, sweet heart: why Bride? What not a word? You take your peniworths now.

[Act 4, Scene 5] Nur. Mistris, what Mistris? Iuliet? Fast I warrant her she. Why Lambe, why Lady ? fie you sluggabed, Why Loue I say ? Madam, sweet heart: why Bride? What not a word? You take your peniworths now.
[2495]
Sleepe for a weeke, for the next night I warrant The Countie Paris hath set vp his rest, That you shall rest but little, God forgiue me: Marrie and Amen: how sound is she a sleepe? I must needs wake her: Madam, Madam, Madam,
[2500]
I, let the Countie take you in your bed, Heele fright you vp yfaith. Will it not be? What drest, and in your clothes, and downe againe? I must needs wake you: Lady, Lady, Lady? Alas, alas, helpe, helpe, my Ladyes dead,
[2505]
Oh weladay, that euer I was borne, Some Aqua‑vitæ ho, my Lord, my Lady?
Mo. What noise is heere? Enter Mother. Nur. O lamentable day. Mo. What is the matter? Nur.
[2510]
Looke, looke, oh heauie day.
Mo. O me, O me, my Child, my onely life: Reuiue, looke vp, or I will die with thee: Helpe, helpe, call helpe. Enter Father. Fa. For shame bring Iuliet forth, her Lord is come. Nur.
[2515]
Shee's dead: deceast, shee's dead: alacke the day.
M. Alacke the day, shee's dead, shee's dead, shee's dead. Fa. Ha? Let me see her: out alas shee's cold, Her blood is setled and her ioynts are stiffe: Life and these lips haue long bene sep erated:
[2520]
Death lies on her like an vntimely frost Vpon the swetest flower of all the field.
Nur. O Lamentable day! Mo. O wofull time. Fa. Death that hath tane her hence to make me waile,
[2525]
Ties vp my tongue, and will not let me speake.
Enter Frier and the Countie. Fri. Come, is the Bride ready to go to Church? Fa. Ready to go, but neuer to returne. O Sonne, the night before thy wedding day, Hath death laine with thy wife: there she lies,
[2530]
Flower as she was, deflowred by him. Death is my Sonne in law, death is my Heire, My Daughter he hath wedded. I will die, And leaue him all life liuing, all is deaths.
Pa. Haue I thought long to see this mornings face,
[2535]
And doth it giue me such a sight as this?
Mo. Accur'st, vnhappie, wretched hatefull day Most miserable houre, that ere time saw In lasting labour of his Pilgrimage. But one, poore one, one poore and louing Child,
[2540]
But one thing to reioyce and solace in, And cruell death hath catcht it from my sight.
Nur. O wo, O wofull, wofull, wofull day Most lamentable day, most wofull day, That euer, euer, I did yet behold.
[2545]
O day, O day, O day, O hatefull day, Neuer was seene so blacke a day as this: O wofull day, O wofull day.
Pa. Beguild, diuorced, wronged, spighted, slaine, Most detestable death, by thee beguil'd,
[2550]
By cruell, cruell thee, quite ouerthrowne: O loue, O life; not life, but loue in death.
Fat. Despis'd, distressed, hated, martir'd, kil'd, Vncomfortable time, why cam'st thou now To murther, murther our solemnitie?
[2555]
O Child, O Child; my soule, and not my Child, Dead art thou, alacke my Child is dead, And with my Child, my ioyes are buried.
Fri. Peace ho for shame, confusions: Care liues not In these confusions, heauen and your selfe
[2560]
Had part in this faire Maid, now heauen hath all, And all the better is it for the Maid: Your part in her, you could not keepe from death, But heauen keepes his part in eternall life: The most you sought was her promotion,
[2565]
For 'twas your heauen, she shouldst be aduan'st, And weepe ye now, seeing she is aduan'st Aboue the Cloudes, as high as Heauen it selfe? O in this loue, you loue your Child so ill, That you run mad, seeing that she is well:
[2570]
Shee's not well married, that liues married long, But shee's best married, that dies married yong. Drie vp your teares, and sticke your Rosemarie On this faire Coarse, and as the custome is, And in her best array beare her to Church:
[2575]
For though some Nature bids all vs lament, Yet Natures teares are Reasons merriment.
Fa. All things that we ordained Festiuall, Turne from their office to blacke Funerall: Our instruments to melancholy Bells,
[2580]
Our wedding cheare, to a sad buriall Feast: Our solemne Hymnes, to sullen Dyrges change: Our Bridall flowers serue for a buried Coarse: And all things change them to the contrarie.
Fri. Sir go you in; and Madam, go with him,
[2585]
And go sir Paris, euery one prepare To follow this faire Coarse vnto her graue: The heauens do lowre vpon you, for some ill: Moue them no more, by crossing their high will.
Exeunt Mu. Faith we may put vp our Pipes and be gone. Nur.
[2590]
Honest goodfellowes: Ah put vp, put vp, For well you know, this is a pitifull case.
Mu. I by my troth, the case may be amended. Enter Peter. Pet. Musitions, oh Musitions, Hearts ease, hearts ease,
[2595]
O, and you will haue me liue, play hearts ease.
Mu. Why hearts ease; Pet. O Musitions, Because my heart it selfe plaies, my heart is full. Mu. Not a dump we, 'tis no time to play now. Pet.
[2600]
You will not then?
Mu. No. Pet. I will then giue it you soundly. Mu. What will you giue vs? Pet. No money on my faith, but the gleeke.
[2605]
I will giue you the Minstrell.
Mu. Then will I giue you the Seruing creature. Peter.

Then will I lay the seruing Creatures Dagger

on your pate. I will carie no Crochets, Ile Re you, Ile Fa

you, do you note me?

Mu.
[2610]
And you Re vs, and Fa vs, you Note vs.
2. M. Pray you put vp your Dagger, And put out your wit. Then haue at you with my wit. Peter. I will drie‑beate you with an yron wit,
[2615]
And put vp my yron Dagger. Answere me like men: When griping griefes the heart doth wound, then Mu­ sicke with her siluer sound.

Why siluer sound? why Musicke with her siluer sound?

what say you Simon Catling?

Mu.
[2620]
Mary sir, because siluer hath a sweet sound.
Pet. Pratest, what say you Hugh Rebicke? 2. M. I say siluer sound, because Musitions sound for sil­ (uer Pet. Pratest to, what say you Iames Sound‑Post? 3. Mu. Faith I know not what to say. Pet.
[2625]
O I cry you mercy, you are the Singer. I will say for you; it is Musicke with her siluer sound, Because Musitions haue no gold for sounding: Then Musicke with her siluer sound, with speedy helpe doth lend redresse.
Exit. Mu.
[2630]
What a pestilent knaue is this same?
M. 2.

Hang him Iacke, come weele in here, tarrie for

the Mourners, and stay dinner.

Exit.
