Come, night. Come, Romeo

User Rating: / 2
Come, night. Come, Romeo. Come, thou day in night,
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow upon a raven’s back.
Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,
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.
- Author: William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet, Act 3, Scene 2)

FuneralChaplain's note: This is the piece of poetry read during the funeral scene of the made for tv movie: "Tuesdays with Morrie," based on the Mitch Albom book of the same title.
