ROMEO 
In faith, I will. Let me peruse this face.
Mercutio's kinsman, noble County Paris!
What said my man, when my betossed soul
Did not attend him as we rode? I think
He told me Paris should have married Juliet:
Said he not so? or did I dream it so?
Or am I mad, hearing him talk of Juliet,
To think it was so? O, give me thy hand,
One writ with me in sour misfortune's book!
I'll bury thee in a triumphant grave;
A grave? O no! a lantern, slaughter'd youth,
For here lies Juliet, and her beauty makes
This vault a feasting presence full of light.
Death, lie thou there, by a dead man interr'd.

Romeo
Sí que lo haré. Veámosle el rostro.
¡El pariente de Mercutio, el conde Páris!
Al tiempo de montar á caballo,
¿no oí, como entre sombras decir, á mi escudero,
que iban á casarse Páris y Julieta?
¿Fué realidad ó sueño?¿Ó es que estaba yo loco 
y creí que me hablaban de Julieta?
Tu nombre está escrito con el mio
en el sangriento libro del destino.
Triunfal sepulcro te espera. ¿Qué digo sepulcro?
Morada de luz, pobre jóven. Allí duerme Julieta,
y ella basta para dar luz y hermosura al mausoleo.
Yace tú á su lado: un muerto es quien te entierra.
