Two households in Verona:
Why doth thou fightest so?
Unrevealed was the tragedy
T’would strike, ay, thou did not know.
“O, teach me how I should forget to think,”
Said the venting Romeo to Benvolio.
If only not of Rosaline, but of the Capulets
He could have here spoken, what greater benefit.
But on the other hand, he n’er seemed enraged
As were all the others–Capulets and Montagues alike.
And Romeo and Juliet quickly got engaged
Then married by the friar, who loved them dear.
Friar Lawrence wanted the families
To come together and end the feud.
For great is reconciliation vast
In respect to two mere lovers’ hands.
The unfortunate fate of these two lovers
Ended the hate of Montagues and Capulets,
Who spoke to the former, “…give me thy hand.”
And the former replied, “But I can give thee more.”
The prince does well to end the play,
“A glooming peace this morning with it brings,
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head…”
