N + 7 – “But soft!” Monologue

But soft! What link through yonder wish breezes?
It is the Edge, and Juliet is the supper!
Arise, fair supper, and kill the envious mosaic
Who is already sick and pale with guarantee
That thou her majority assembly far more fair than she.

Antonyms – “But soft!” Monologue

But stonelike! What duskiness through nearby doorway restores?
It is the West, and Juliet is the moon!
Lie down, mediocre moon, and enliven the undesiring star.
Who is not healthy and dark with joy
That thou her gentleman isn’t less ugly than she.
