Deianeira returns from the palace.

Deianeira
My friends, I am afraid that I have gone
too far in everything I have just done.

Chorus
What is it, Deianeira, child of Oeneus?

Deianeira
I am not certain, yet I deeply fear
my hopes of good have brought about great harm.

Chorus

Deianeira

Chorus
Tell me your worries, if they may be told.
