Juliet - Scene 2, Act 3
Gallop a pace you firey footed steeds
towards phoebus' lodging. Such a waggoner
as phaeton would whip you to the west
and bring in cloudy night immediately.
Spread thy close curtain love-performing night,
that runway's eyes may wink and romeo
leap to these arms untalk'd-of and unseen.

but romeo's name speaks heavenly eloquence.

Plis Star, dere gartre, ma' hi di myn' yn waeth. Na, ers i ti dweud 'na wrth hi neithiwr! Oh, paid dweud 'na. Just dere gartre Star? Star? Star?! Fy chwaer.
Just fi a Marigold o hyn ymlaen. Wy'n siwr bo' chi di gweld hi. Ar y stryd? Tatws o'i phen i'w soldau. Ma' pawb wedi sylwi arni hi. Wel, dyna'n fam i. Wedodd Star neithiwr am hanner nos bod hi'n gadael a mynd i fyw gyda'i thad o hyn ymlaen. Star yw ei ffefryn hi, wastad wedi bod. O'dd Marigold mewn cariad gyda tad Star. Dechreuodd Marigold i yfed yn syth! Deffrais i am...
