| The quarto, 1597, reads :
“ Then stay awhile, thou shalt not go (so] soon." The succeeding speech, I think (says Mr. Boswell), is better in the same copy:

1 The toad having very fine eyes, and the lark very ugly ones, was the occasion of a common saying, that the toad and the lark had changed eyes.
2 The hunt's up was originally a tune played to wake sportsmen, and call them together. It was a common burden of hunting-ballads.

Enter LADY CAPULET.
La. Cap. Why, how now, Juliet ?
Madam, I am not well. La. Cap. Evermore weeping for your cousin's death? What, wilt thou wash him from his grave with tears ? An if thou couldst, thou couldst not make bim live; Therefore, have done. Some grief shows much of love; But much of grief shows still some want of wit.
