1: Prince Escalus Peace! Throw your mistempered weapons to the ground! Rightly he seeks to end the feud of Capulet and Montague. Instantly he decrees: Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace! Nonsensical is this feud, and I, for winking at your discords, lose. Capulet and Montague, Friar, and Nurse - ALL ARE PUNISHED! Escalus, ruler of Verona, fails to help the star-crossed lovers
2: Romeo Montague Receiver of love from fair Juliet, a Capulet and his enemy Over dramatic about every situation Movers fast in his choice of love and pays the price Every faithful to Juliet, once they meet Out going in his love and pursuit of happiness
3: Juliet Capulet Joyful, jovial Juliet Under Cupid's spell, Looking for the right answer In Romeo's true love. Even though fate had other plans and Their parents' hate cost them their lives
4: Romeo Montague Romantic Romeo in love with sweet Juliet Only death will part him from his love Murder mad him flee to Friar Laurence's cell Enduring the pain from the death of poor Mercutio Oh how sad to lose these star-crossed lovers to a dark death.
5: JULIET CAPULET Juvenile and anxious to marry, Under the spell of star-crossed love Leading to the deaths of Innocent friends and Eventually killing herself... Together, lying in the tomb forever.
6: COUNT PARIS Persuasive to old Capulet Asking and asking to marry Juliet Response? Wait two summers Insisting a date that is more near, Saddened by his paramour's death
7: Mercutio Me? I would take 1 of your 9 lives! Even so, I would be for you - Rage causes my response, alas! Under your arm I was hurt... They've made worms' meat of me! Internal strife of thoughts & dreams O' both your houses - A PLAGUE!
8: Romeo Ravaged his one and Only chance at true love, banished to Mantua, for ,whilst in a rage, Ending Tybalt's life, & upsetting his wife: "Oh, happy dagger, here is thy sheath!"
9: Juliet Just you and me, that's all that matters Understand me, Keep me Love, My only love sprung from my only hate I must love a loathed enemy Ever and ever shall I love Thee, forever in eternity
10: Romeo Roseline - once his love - did not love him Out of her favor where I am in love Montague, a foe, loves the pretty Capulet Even this star-crossed lover can find love Oh the tragedy, though in the end- love remains
11: Juliet Just in love at only 13 Untimely - her love is star-crossed Loving is never easy In Verona, love kills Every fray, another man gone Tybalt's death is by her husband love remains
12: PARIS Persuasive to Lord Capulet Asking, always asking, May I marry Juliet? Response? wait, wait 2 long years - he Insists on a date more near, only to be Shaken at death & killed by her only love.
14: Romeo Rather quickly fall in and out Of love without seeming to realize ie "Did My heart love till now? Less than 2 days later, they Eloped. Happily married for a mere 3 hours before Romeo Overly angry at Mercutio's death, slays Tybalt.
15: Paris Patiently waiting for the hand of Juliet At her father's wish that things not be Rushed...Still unknowing that Juliet's love is Inscribed on the heart of her only love sprung from her only hate Silently Paris waits by the tomb til his untimely death by duel
