'Yet die I will not till my Collatine (1178)

Have heard the cause of my untimely death; (1179)

That he may vow, in that sad hour of mine, (1180)

Revenge on him that made me stop my breath. (1181)

My stained blood to Tarquin I'll bequeath,
Which by him tainted shall for him be spent, (1183)

And as his due writ in my testament.
