Default Nothing but Beautiful

"Come, gentle night; come, loving black-brow’d night.
Give me my Romeo: and when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars.
And he will make the face of heaven so fine,
That all the world will be in love with night--"

So just what is Juliet saying here? Almost nothing, really, for so many words. It seems to be just an expression of emotion. But it’s so beautiful and so powerful. Beauty has its own value and substance. I think it’s OK at times to add a lot of nothing to what is said, but to do it beautifully. I wouldn’t give up having known these words.
