Enter LADY CAPULET and NURSE. La. Cap. Hold, take these keys, and fetch more spices,
nurse. Nurse. They call for dates and quinces in the pastry.
Nurse. Go, you cot-quean, go,
Cap. No, not a whit; What! I have watch'd ere now
time; But I will watch you from such watching now.

Enter Servants, with spits, logs, and baskets. 1 Serv. Things for the cook, sir; but I know not
Enter Lady CAPULET.
O lamentable day! 'La. Cap. What is the matter ? Nurse.

Fri. Come, is the bride ready to go to church?
Cap. Ready to go, but never to return; O son, the night before thy wedding-day Hath death lain with thy wife :- There she lies, Flower as she was, deflowered by him. Death is my son-in-law, death is my heir; My daughter he hath wedded! I will die, And leave him all ; life leaving, all is death's. • Par.

Cap. Despis’d, distressed, hated, martyr'd, kill'd !

The most you sought was her promotion ; For ’t was your heaven, she should be advanc'd : And weep ye now, seeing she is advanc'd, Above the clouds, as high as heaven itself? 0, in this love, you love your child so ill, That you run mad, seeing that she is well : She 's not well married that lives married long; But she 's best married that dies married young. Dry up your tears, and stick your rosemary On this fair corse; and, as the custom is, In all her best array bear her to church :
