This bud of love by summer’s ripening breath/May prove a beauteous flow’r when next we meet Metaphor- Juliet

Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,Toward Phoebus’ lodging. Such a wagonerAs Phaeton would whip you to the westAnd bring in cloudy night immediately.Spread thy close curtain, love-performing night,That runaways’ eyes may wink, and RomeoLeap to these arms, untalked of and unseen.Lovers can see to do their amorous ritesBy 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 matchPlayed 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.
