, a wreck, her hair a mess, speaking constantly to the “unjust sea.” And though she was never to see him again, still she mourned, remembering their long happiness. And Hypsipyle stood in her empty bedroom, destroyed, when the winds snatched Jason away: Hypsipyle had no lovers after him, she wasted away over her Thessalian guest.

I hope you'll feel the same if you survive me! Then I'd be happy to die anywhere. I'm so afraid unfair Love will drag you from my grave, Cynthia, with contempt for my burial and force you unwillingly to dry your falling tears! The most faithful girl is bent by constant innuendo. Let's enjoy being lovers while we can: Love is
