Odes 3.22

Latin English





5

Montium custos nemorumque, Virgo,
quae laborantes utero puellas
ter vocata audis adimisque leto,
     diva triformis,

imminens villae tua pinus esto,
quam per exactos ego laetus annos
verris obliquum meditantis ictum
     sanguine donem.

O Maiden goddess, guardian of hill and grove, thou
that, thrice invoked, givest ear to young mothers
when in travail and rescuest them from death,
goddess of the triple form,

thine be the pine that overhangs my dwelling,
that gladly through the passing years I may
offer to it the blood of a boar practising
its first sidelong thrusts!
