THE LOVE SONNETS OF PROTEUS: 39. FAREWELL TO JULIET (1), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Juliet, farewell. I would not be forgiven
Last Line: And heaven and hell may meet,—yet never we.


Juliet, farewell. I would not be forgiven
Even if I forgave. These words must be
The last between us two in Earth or Heaven,
The last and bitterest. You are henceforth free
For ever from my bitter words and me.
You shall not at my hand be further vexed
With either love, reproach or jealousy
(So help me Heaven), in this world or the next.
Our souls are single for all time to come
And for eternity, and this farewell
Is as the trumpet note, the crack of doom,
Which heralds an eternal silence. Hell
Has no more fixed and absolute decree.
And Heaven and Hell may meet,—yet never we.
