Dark veiled Latona, much invoked queen,
Twin-bearing Goddess, of a noble mien;
Caeantis great, a mighty mind is thine,
Offspring prolific, blessed, of Jove divine:
Phoebus proceeds from thee, the God of light,
And Dian fair, whom winged darts delight;
She in Ortygia’s honored regions born,
In Delos he, which lofty mounts adorn.
Hear me, O queen, and favorably attend,
And to this telete divine afford a pleasing end.
