'Why, Collatine, is woe the cure for woe? (1822)

Do wounds help wounds, or grief help grievous deeds? (1823)

Is it revenge to give thyself a blow (1824)

For his foul act by whom thy fair wife bleeds? (1825)

Such childish humour from weak minds proceeds:
Thy wretched wife mistook the matter so, (1827)

To slay herself, that should have slain her foe.
