'If Collatinus dream of my intent, (219)

Will he not wake, and in a desperate rage (220)

Post hither, this vile purpose to prevent? (221)

This siege that hath engirt his marriage, (222)

This blur to youth, this sorrow to the sage,
This dying virtue, this surviving shame, (224)

Whose crime will bear an ever-during blame?
