mother of rome delight of gods and men

dear venus that beneath the gliding stars

makest to teem the many voyaged main

and fruitful lands for all of living things

through thee alone are evermore conceived

through thee are risen to visit the great sun

before thee goddess and thy coming on

flee stormy wind and massy cloud away

for thee the daedal earth bears scented flowers

for thee unvexed waters of the deep

smile and the hollows of the serene sky

glow with diffused radiance for thee

aeneadum genetrix hominum divomque voluptas

alma venus caeli subter labentia signa

quae mare navigerum quae terras frugiferentis

concelebras per te quoniam genus omne animantum

concipitur visitque exortum lumina solis

te dea te fugiunt te nubila caeli

adventumque tuum tibi suavis daedala tellus

summittit flores tibi rident aequora ponti

placatumque nitet diffuso lumine caelum

nam simul ac species patefactast verna diei

et reserata viget genitabilis aura favoni

aeriae primum volucris te diva tuumque

significant initum perculsae corda tua vi

inde ferae pecudes persultant pabula laeta

et rapidos tranant amnis ita capta lepore
