Homework Help: Ninth Grade English

Posted by Cathy on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 10:57am.

Romeo and Juliet;

Act 1 Scene 5

Now old desire doth in his death-bed lie,
and young affection gapes to be his heir;
That fair for which love groan'd for and would die,
With tender Juliet match'd is now not fair.
Now romeo is belov'd, and loves again,
Alike bewitched by the charm of looks;
But his foe suppos'd he must complain,
And she steal love's sweet bait from fearful hooks.
Being held a foe, he may not have access
To breathe such vows as lovers use to swear,
As she as much in love, her means much less
To meet her new-beloved any where:
But passion lends them power, time means, to meet,
Temp'ring extremities with extreme sweet.

Explain the meaning of this in modern english.
