'I have debated, even in my soul, (499)

What wrong, what shame, what sorrow I shall breed; (500)

But nothing can affection's course control, (501)

Or stop the headlong fury of his speed. (502)

I know repentant tears ensue the deed,
Reproach, disdain, and deadly enmity; (504)

Yet strike I to embrace mine infamy.'
