aho me bata daurātmyaṁ
yo 'ṅkaṁ premṇārurukṣantaṁ
nābhyanandam asattamaḥ

Alas, just see how I was conquered by my wife! Just imagine my cruelty! Out of love and affection the boy was trying to get up on my lap, but I did not receive him, nor did I even pat him for a moment. Just imagine how hardhearted I am.
