You'll find a good list of oxymorons in Romeo's speech about loving Rosaline. An oxymoron, as you know, is a statement of contrast, often ironic in nature. Romeo says: "Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health!"
The opening lines of the balcony scene present a famous metaphor. Romeo says, "Juliet is the sun." Personification, when the sun and moon are given human traits, occurs in the next line: "Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon." One is bidden to arise and kill the other.
