'In vain I rail at Opportunity, (1024)
At Time, at Tarquin, and uncheerful Night; (1025)
In vain I cavil with mine infamy, (1026)
In vain I spurn at my confirm'd despite: (1027)
This helpless smoke of words doth me no right.
The remedy indeed to do me good (1029)
Is to let forth my foul-defiled blood.
