From the recording Samson at Home

<p>Kerry Ryer-Parke sings Dalila's plea asking for Samson's forgiveness. &nbsp;Mat provides the obbligato line (originally scored for violin).</p>


<p>With plaintive notes and am&rsquo;rous moan,&nbsp;<br />Thus coos the turtle left alone.<br />Like me, averse to each delight,<br />She wears the tedious widow&rsquo;d night.&nbsp;<br />But when her absent mate returns<br />With doubled raptures then she burns.&nbsp;</p>
