It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierc'd the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nightly she sings on yond pomegranate tree: Believe me, love, it was the nightingale. Juliet tries to persuade Romeo that the lark he can hear singing (which means it is morning) is actually a nightingale (which sings at night) Yond light is not daylight, I know it, I: It is some meteor that the sun exhales To be to thee this night a torch-bearer And light thee on the way to Mantua: Therefore stay yet, thou need'st not to be gone. Juliet again tries to persuade Romeo that the light coming through the window is from a meteor and not the rising sun.
