Vendetta giusta.

Just revenge.


Il Corvo un Scorpione havendo preso,
Nel becco se’l portava audace, e pieno
Di nova fame, quando quell’offeso
Pe i membri infuse in lui l’atro veleno.
O degno fatto, cadde a la sua sorte
Morendo, chi ad altrui volea dar morte.

Love’s might

Aligerum fulmen fregit deus aliger, igne
Dum demonstrat uti est fortior ignis amor.[1]
