S.P.Q.R. - Senatus Populusque Romanus



ALME SOL, curru nitido diem qui
promis et celas aliusque et idem
nasceris possis nihil urbe Roma
visere maius!
Carmen Saeculare, 9-12
Horatius Flaccus

SATURN's daughter, antient dame,
Seat of fire's unweary'd frame,
Source of virtue's perfect light,
Juno's equal, Vesta bright,
Stable goddess, essence fair,
Gracious listen to my prayer;
And while ardent thee I sing,
Borne on pure devotion's wing,
With thy unpolluted fire
All my mental powers inspire.
Hymn to Vesta by Thomas Taylor the Platonist
