SCENE VI. Friar Laurence's cell.
Enter FRIAR LAURENCE and ROMEOFRIAR LAURENCE
So smile the heavens upon this holy act,ROMEO
That after hours with sorrow chide us not!
Amen, amen! but come what sorrow can,FRIAR LAURENCE
It cannot countervail the exchange of joy
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.
These violent delights have violent endsJULIET
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;
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
Enter JULIETHere comes the lady: O, so light a foot
Will ne'er wear out the everlasting flint:
A lover may bestride the gossamer
That idles in the wanton summer air,
And yet not fall; so light is vanity.
Good even to my ghostly confessor.FRIAR LAURENCE
Romeo shall thank thee, daughter, for us both.JULIET
As much to him, else is his thanks too much.ROMEO
Ah, Juliet, if the measure of thy joyJULIET
Be heap'd like mine and that thy skill be more
To blazon it, then sweeten with thy breath
This neighbour air, and let rich music's tongue
Unfold the imagined happiness that both
Receive in either by this dear encounter.
Conceit, more rich in matter than in words,FRIAR LAURENCE
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.
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.
