WO housholds, both alike in dignity,
From ancient Grudge break to new mutiny ;

Where civil blood makes civil bands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,

A pair of star-croft lovers take their life;
Whose mif-adventur'd piteous overthrows

Do, with their death, bury their parents' frife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,

And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which but their childrens' end nought could remove,

Is now the two hours' traffick of our page :
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here fall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
