O Earth, Earth, if only you had taken me to yourself before ever I had lived to see my lord  occupying a lowly bed of a silver-sided bath! Who shall bury him? Who shall lament him? Will you harden your heart to do this—you who have slain your own husband—to lament for him  and crown your unholy work with an uncharitable gift to his spirit, atoning for your monstrous deeds? And who, as with tears he utters praise over the hero's grave,  shall sorrow in sincerity of heart?
