      Here in | this ci|ty vis|iting | the sick,
           ,        ,          ,         ,         ,
      And fin|ding him,| the sear|chers of | the town
          ,               ,   ,          ,       ,

        ,            ,    2    ,      ,           ,
10    Where the | infec|tious pes|tilence | did reign,
         ,              ,           ,          ,         ,
      Sealed up | the doors,| and would | not let | us forth,
       ,             ,         ,   2    ,            ,

FRIAR LAURENCE

      I could | not send | it, here | it is | again,
           ,       ,      ,         ,          ,
15    Nor get | a mes|senger | to bring | it thee,
           ,        ,          ,      ,        o
      So fear|ful were | they of | infec|tion.
 
FRIAR LAURENCE

      Unhap|py for|tune: by | my bro|therhood,
           ,             ,    ,          ,         ,
      The let|ter was / not nice | but full | of charge
           ,     ,        ,            ,        ,
      Of dear | import,| and the | neglec|ting it
           ,         ,        ,       ,         ,
20    May do | much^dan|ger. Fri|ar John | go hence;
       ,           ,      ,          ,           ,
      Get me | an ir|on crow,| and bring | it straight
       ,  2       ,
      Unto my | cell.

FRIAR LAURENCE
            ,       ,        ,     ,       ,
      Now must | I to | the mon|ument | alone;
          ,            ,            ,     ,        ,
25    Within | three^hours | will fair | Juli|et wake:
            ,        ,          ,          ,   ,
      She will | beshrew | me much | that Ro|meo
            ,     ,  ,                  ,     ,
      Hath had | no no/tice of | these ac|cidents;
          ,          ,        ,        ,    ,
      But I | will write | again | to Man|tua,
            ,         ,        ,          ,  2    ,
      And keep | her at | my cell | till Ro|meo come;
             ,        ,        ,     2      T    T     T
30    Poor* li|ving corse,| closed in a | dead man's tomb.
