In this destiny, this blind and fickle flight
I found myself cast by Fate's fingers--
Into a web in which I am ensnared--
Perhaps 'tis some monstrous joke?
Nay, far worse. Far worse! For I discovered
That by my own hand was the trap sprung;
"Tis my own weaving that made the entanglement,
My own hand and my own folly
That became Fate...
No jape, indeed.
For I have learned
The hand of Fate
