Heaven sent

“O, speak again, bright angel, for thou art As glorious to this night, being o’er my head As a winged messenger of heaven Unto the white upturned wondering eyes 30 Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him When he bestrides the lazy puffing clouds, And floats upon the bosom of the air.”
Romeo is implying that Juliet’s eyes are stars and this expresses his sincerity that he believes Juliet to be unreal and enchanted because her eyes are stars. When Juliet speaks Romeo also refers to her as an angel and being almost immortal, saying that she is from heaven. He says, “O speak again, bright angel -“.
Romeo compares Juliet to a glorious angel from heaven come down to earth to deliver a message from God. Just as an Angel is graceful , and beautiful so is Juliet.
“ Love straight from heaven”
