'Dear lord of that dear jewel I have lost, (1192)

What legacy shall I bequeath to thee? (1193)

My resolution, love, shall be thy boast, (1194)

By whose example thou revenged mayst be. (1195)

How Tarquin must be used, read it in me:
Myself, thy friend, will kill myself, thy foe, (1197)

And for my sake serve thou false Tarquin so.
