By this, starts Collatine as from a dream, (1773)

And bids Lucretius give his sorrow place; (1774)

And then in key-cold Lucrece' bleeding stream (1775)

He falls, and bathes the pale fear in his face, (1776)

And counterfeits to die with her a space;
Till manly shame bids him possess his breath (1778)

And live to be revenged on her death.
