Private Romeo


Two households both alike in dignity
In fair Verona
where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge
break to new mutiny
Where civil blood
makes civil hands unclean
from forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star crossed lovers
take their life
Whose misadventures piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents strife
The fearful passage of their death mark’d love
And the continuance
of their parents rage
Which but their children’s end bought could remove
Is now the two hours traffic of our stage
The which if you with patient ears attend
What here shall miss our toil shall strive to mend
