Romeo and Juliet Act 3, Scene 2

Juliet enters her bed chamber impatiently waiting to hear news from her Nurse about Romeo. She talks about how she loves Romeo so much, and how she is waiting to consummate their marriage.

"Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
O, I have bought the mansion of a love,
But not possessed it; and though I am sold,
Not yet enjoyed."
Act 3, Scene 2, lines 21-8
