TWO
WO Houfkolds, both glike in Dignity,

In fair Verona, (where we lay our Scene)
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes çivil hands uoclean.
From forth the fatal loins of thefe two foes,

A pair of star-crossd lovers take their life
Whose mif-adventur'd pitious overthrows,

De, with their death, bury their parents frise.
The fearful paffage of their death-mark'd love,

And the continuance of their parents rage,
Which but their childrens end nought could remove,

Is now the two hours traffick of our stage.
The which if you wish patient ears attend,
What here fall miss, our toil. No all frive so mundo
