Traditionally, sonnets are the poetic expression of love. Shakespeare is creating a play in which the main characters fall in love quickly and marry - he has to accomplish this quickly, so that he can move the plot along to its tragic outcome. In the prologue, Shakespeare lets us know that the plot will involve two "star-crossed lovers". By using the language of a sonnet for their first meeting, Shakespeare is alerting the audience to the knowledge that it is these two characters to whom he was refering.
