Romeo, but a name of one who died young in this world of pain

And as gods cried with their tears of rain

A purifying rain 'twas that cast a shadow on your love

For all gods that cry above

Blessed you with a radiance of inner bliss

And Cupids bow did not miss

You his mark and your love for Juliet blossoms like a rose

So sweet upon your nose

But none know of your love of her

But still none love can deter

Your hands shaped upon her loving hand

You give up all your many land

But even in your tragedy

Love him did not she?
Upon his lips she kisses

But the poison doth she misses

So take in her hand a haply dagger

And for love she is deaths beggar

One quick thrust and all is done

And now two lovers are gone
