He stories to her ears her husband's fame, (107)

Won in the fields of fruitful Italy; (108)

And decks with praises Collatine's high name, (109)

Made glorious by his manly chivalry (110)

With bruised arms and wreaths of victory:
Her joy with heaved-up hand she doth express, (112)

And, wordless, so greets heaven for his success.
