Ah, what a fire it is!
It comes upon me.
It is the two-foot lioness who beds beside a wolf, the noble lion away,
It is she will kill me!
Brewing a poisoned cup, she will mix my punishment while sharpening the dagger for her husband;
to pay back murder for my being brought here.
Destruction! They call me crazy, like a fortune-teller,
A poor, starved, beggar woman and I bore it!
And now the prophet undoing his prophetess has brought me to this final darkness.
Instead of my father's altar the executioner's block waits me the victim, red with my hot blood.
I will go in and have the courage to die.
Look, these are the gates of death.
I greet them, and pray that I may meet a deft and mortal stroke
so that I may close my eyes as my blood ebbs in an easy death.
