Naves Iovis

13. Naves Iovis
Nubes Iovis transeunt
— sicut naves albae
et sub Sole navigant
— super mare Terrae.
Aquas nubes inferunt
— lustrationibus Veris
hae et Terram eluunt
— agrosque Cereris.
Quoque post turbidinem
— formas ponunt primas
simulacra pingentes
— quietisque scenas.
Deos laudo, aeternum
— Qui Rationem servant,
Qui Sagacitatem ferunt,
— Qui pios vigilant,
Quia Illi pictam condunt
— in qua delibero
carmen meum Illis scriptum
— pollucto offero.


"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
