and the sky above be black;
for I have spoken, I have decided,
I will not change my mind, I will not turn back.”

some plunge into thickets; others climb rocks;
all cities are deserted; no one lives there.

decking yourselves with jewels and gold,
enlarging your eyes with eye make-up?
You beautify yourself in vain —
your lovers despise you, they seek your life!
