Approach strong Fortune, with propitious mind
And rich abundance, to my pray'r inclin'd
Placid, and gentle Trivia, mighty nam'd, 3
Imperial Dian, born of Pluto fam'd;
Mankind's unconquer'd, endless praise is thine, 5
Sepulch'ral, widely-wand'ring pow'r divine!
In thee, our various mortal life is found,
And some from thee hi copious wealth abound;
While others mourn thy hand averse to bless,
In all the bitterness of deep distress. 10
Bc present, Goddess, to thy vot'ry kind,
And give abundance with benignant mind.
203:3 Ver. 3.] Placid and gentle Trivia. See the note to the Introduction to Musæus.
