ROMEO

Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast.
190Would I were sleep and peace, so sweet to rest.
Hence will I to my ghostly friar’s close cell,
His help to crave and my dear hap to tell.

ROMEO

I hope you sleep peacefully. I wish I were Sleep and Peace, so I could spend the night with you. Now I’ll go see my priest, to ask for his help and tell him about my good luck.
Exit
He exits.
