Quote by William Shakespeare: “Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed ...”
Romeo and Juliet, Act III, Scene II [Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds]
Such a wagoner As Phaeton would whip you to the west And bring in cloudy night immediately. Lovers can see to do their amorous rites By their own beauties, or, if love be blind, It best agrees with night. Come, civil night, Thou sober-suited matron, all in black, And learn me how to lose a winning match Played for a pair of stainless maidenhoods. Hood my unmanned blood bating in my cheeks, With thy black mantle, till strange love, grow bold, Think true love acted simple modesty. Come, night. Come, Romeo.
Tell me where is Fancy bred, Or in the heart or in the head? Reply, reply. It is engender'd in the eyes; With gazing fed; and Fancy dies In the cradle where it lies. Let us all ring Fancy's knell: I'll begin it,--Ding, dong, bell! Ding, dong, bell! On the bat's back I do fly After summer merrily: Merrily, merrily, shall I live now, Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet by: William Shakespeare. Why are there sonnets in Romeo and Juliet? Act 3 Scene 2. Come, civil night,. I wish the sun would hurry up and set and night would come immediately. When the night comes and everyone goes to sleep, Romeo will leap into my arms, and no one will know. Beauty makes it possible for lovers to see how to make love in the dark.
