Weep, weep over our calamity, and depart to your homes.

Alas, alas, woe, woe!

[1040] Cry aloud now in response to me.

A wretched offering from the wretched to the wretched.

Cry out, tuning your strain to mine.

Oh, oh! That which has happened is grievous indeed. [1045] Alas, for I too share in your sorrow.
