p. a320


A woman's incantation against a rival

1I have extracted from thy sides, I have extracted from thy heart,
  I have extracted from thy face the strength and splendour that
   were thine.
2Let pain and suffering pass away, let cares and curses vanish.
  Let Agni slay the fiendish hags, Soma kill bags who trouble us.
