Juliet is anxiously awaiting her wedding night with Romeo. She wants the darkness to come quickly - she wants the sun god, Phoebus, to quickly get out of the sky, to "bring in cloudy night immediately." Her impatience is demonstrative of her youth:

"So tedious is this day As is the night before some festival To an impatient child that hath new robes And may not wear them." (Act III, scene ii)
