'This brief abridgement of my will I make: (1199)

My soul and body to the skies and ground; (1200)

My resolution, husband, do thou take; (1201)

Mine honor be the knife's that makes my wound; (1202)

My shame be his that did my fame confound;
And all my fame that lives disbursed be (1204)

To those that live, and think no shame of me.
