623

Chorus But since I have recalled tales of pitiless afflictions, it is the right time to tell of a marriage void of love, an abomination to the house, 625and the plots devised by a wife's cunning against her warrior lord, against her lord revered with reason by his foes. But I honor the hearths of homes not heated by passion's fires, and in woman a spirit that shrinks from audacious deeds. 630
