And still she cried,
A reference to John Lyly’s Alexander and Campaspe:
“Jug, jug, jug, jug, tereu,” she cries,
And still her woes at midnight rise.
Brave prick-song! who is’t now we hear?
None but the lark so shrill and clear;
‘Tereu’ is the Latin vocative of Tereus.
Alexander and Campaspe is about a love triangle between king Alexander, his slave Campaspe and the painter Apelles.
