BUT, SOFT! WHAT LIGHT FROM YONDER WINDOW BREAKS?

dining room window BW
Romeo and Juliet: Balcony Scene

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off. (2.2.3-10)

Both windows face east, and the light is that of the rising sun.

  1. Beautiful! Great photos and you can’t go wrong with Shakespeare to counter the light by casting his own. ❀

  3. Marvelous shot. This time when I looked at this pic again it was looking so different because of Shakespeare touch. Very creative indeed. Star- crossed lovers still make me sad though fools but too much in love, so much that they didn’t feel like checking the facts before killing themselves.

  5. Hello Marilyn πŸ™‚ Sorry I took some hours to connect. Are these gorgeous windows in your home? Shakespeare’s accompaniment is a perfect match for the beautiful light you’ve captured.

  6. Bravo, Bravo!.., or is that reserved only for Opera? What ever happened to romantic words.., there was wooing, palpitations and swooning, all on account of words. Of course “swooning” may have been the result of low “bath” frequency back in the day, but what ever works , works, right? Maybe “swooning” was just a way to ignore the present conditions and get on with the inevitable outcome.

    All I know is that if I ever attempted to say stuff like the above, to a person of the opposite sex.., I’d be labeled as some kinda nut, or worse, laughed out of the room. Back then I’m sure old Romeo got high fives from his peers and words like “you are too Smeeoooth dude” πŸ™‚
