Be not her maid, since she is envious…

  1. The question left out a very important line. This should be the whole excerpt:

    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.


    Now you need to re-think your answer.
