She who was fought for once by mighty warriors,
Deianeira, is wasting with desire;
and, like the mournful nightingale,
she cannot cease her tearful yearnings ever,
but thinks with fear on her husband's distant journey,
110racked on her widowed couch of torment, only
waiting to see her direst dreams fulfilled.
