Romeo and Juliet

by: William Shakespeare

Act 2, prologue–scene 1

1
Appear thou in likeness of a sigh,
Speak but one rhyme and I am satisfied,
Cry but “Ay me,” pronounce but “love” and “dove” (2.1.)
2
‘Twould anger him
To raise a spirit in his mistress’ circle
Of some strange nature (2.1.)
3
O Romeo, that she were, O, that she were
An open-arse, thou a poperin pear! (2.1.)
