Aria

BABA
Scorned! abused! neglected! baited!
Wretched me!
Why is this?
I can see.
I know who is your bliss,
your love, your life.
While l, your loving wife,
lie not!, ... am hated.
Young, demure, delightful, clever!
Is she not? not as l.
That is what I know you sigh.
Then sigh, then cry!
For she your wife shall never,
shall never be. Oh, no, never!
¡ne...!
