In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

Should without eyes, see pathways to his will!
Where shall we dine? O me! What fray was here?
Yet tell me not, for I have hear it all.

Why then, O brawling love! O …
