Enter FRIAR LAWRENCE and ROMEO
FRIAR LEWENCRA dan ORMEO tnree.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

So smile the heavens upon this holy act
That after-hours with sorrow chide us not.

RFARI WCEENLRA

aMy het vsnheae be papyh wiht shit lhyo act of emarigra, so tohngin otfuatrnune hpnapse rleat to kame us grrete it.

ROMEO

Amen, amen. But come what sorrow can,
It cannot countervail the exchange of joy
5 That one short minute gives me in her sight.
Do thou but close our hands with holy words,
Then love-devouring death do what he dare;
It is enough I may but call her mine.

RMOOE

Aenm, enma. But eheatrwv msiftrueons rucco, etyh tanc niru eht yoj I efel iwht neo olko at hre. All oyu evah to do is jnoi uor snhda ihwt yolh dwsor, nhet velo-ydsngeroit heatd anc do vewhetar it paeesls. Ist ngehuo for me if I can acll hre eimn.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

These violent delights have violent ends
10 And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite.
Therefore love moderately. Long love doth so.
15 Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.

FRIAR CRAWEELN

eTshe unedsd joys aevh dsenud gesnidn. Tehy rbun up in cioyvrt keli ifre dna ndwperuog. nhWe heyt mtee, as in a ssik, eyth eelpodx. ooT much hnoey is olsuideic, but it keasm uoy ciks to yuro matosch. erfeToerh, ovle aceh rhote in datmorione. Ttah is the yke to nlgo-lntsiga olev. Too satf is as bad as too swlo.
Enter JULIET , somewhat fast, and embraceth ROMEO
EJLTUI nstere in a uhrs nda becrseam EOMOR .
Here comes the lady. Oh, so light a foot
Will neer wear out the everlasting flint.
A lover may bestride the gossamers
That idles in the wanton summer air,
20 And yet not fall. So light is vanity.
eeHr cmose teh alyd. Oh,a otsepfto as tgihl as hser lliw evren enrude hte rkcoy orad of elif. Lroevs rea so ghlit they nca walk on a pdeebsirw onftailg on a mresmu eerzeb, dan yte ont fall. tsahT ohw yfsmil dna ulenar persuela is.

JULIET

Good even to my ghostly confessor.

TLJUIE

Good nnigvee, my uilpstari ceoossfnr.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

Romeo shall thank thee, daughter, for us both.

FIARR CARWELEN

ooRme iwll taknh uoy, my irgl, orf bhot of us.

JULIET

As much to him, else is his thanks too much.

TLEUIJ

Ill veig hmi quale atnhks, so rewe enev.

ROMEO

Ah, Juliet, if the measure of thy joy
25 Be heaped like mine, and that thy skill be more
To blazon it, then sweeten with thy breath
This neighbor air, and let rich musics tongue
Unfold the imagined happiness that both
Receive in either by this dear encounter.

ROOME

Ah, ieJltu if eryuo as phypa as I am, nda euory brette thwi owdsr, ellt me uobta eht hpnesapsi you ainegmi lewl have in rou eargiamr.

JULIET

30 Conceit, more rich in matter than in words,
Brags of his substance, not of ornament.
They are but beggars that can count their worth.
But my true love is grown to such excess
I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.

IEUTJL

I nac mageiin eorm ntha I can ayIs ehav ermo on my dimn ahnt drwso. oynnAe owh can tcoun who uhmc he ash is orpo. My rteu ovel hsa meda me so hcri taht I ncta tuocn vene alfh of my laewth.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

35 Come, come with me, and we will make short work.
For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone
Till holy church incorporate two in one.

FIRRA LNRCEWEA
