'Show me the strumpet that began this stir, (1472)

That with my nails her beauty I may tear. (1473)

Thy heat of lust, fond Paris, did incur (1474)

This load of wrath that burning Troy doth bear: (1475)

Thy eye kindled the fire that burneth here;
And here in Troy, for trespass of thine eye, (1477)

The sire, the son, the dame, and daughter die.
