Faithless one, did you really think you could hide

such wickedness, and vanish from my land in silence?

Will my love not hold you, nor the pledge I once gave you,

nor the promise that Dido will die a cruel death?

Even in winter do you labour over your ships, cruel one,

so as to sail the high seas at the height of the northern gales?

Why? If you were not seeking foreign lands and unknown

settlements, but ancient Troy still stood, would Troy

be sought out by your ships in wave-torn seas?

Is it me you run from? I beg you, by these tears, by your own

right hand (since I’ve left myself no other recourse in my misery),

by our union, by the marriage we have begun,

if ever I deserved well of you, or anything of me

was sweet to you, pity this ruined house, and if

there is any room left for prayer, change your mind.

The Libyan peoples and Numidian rulers hate me because of you:

my Tyrians are hostile: because of you all shame too is lost,

the reputation I had, by which alone I might reach the stars.

My guest, since that’s all that is left me from the name of husband,

to whom do you relinquish me, a dying woman?

Why do I stay? Until Pygmalion, my brother, destroys

the city, or Iarbas the Gaetulian takes me captive?

If I’d at least conceived a child of yours

before you fled, if a little Aeneas were playing

about my halls, whose face might still recall yours,

I’d not feel myself so utterly deceived and forsaken.

(Aeneid, book IV)
