Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

COLLATINUS
(Enter from tent)
How bitter of you,
how venomous to vent your rage on her!
Why be so vicious why so jealous?
You're blinded by grief at Patricia's unfaithfulness.

JUNIUS
The wound in my heart, Collatinus,
will drive me to despair.
I ask your forgiveness for being malicious
when you are so proud of Lucretia's virtue

(aside)  

Or good luck!
