Nunc aetās magna atque nova incipit. Puer nāscitur ac gēns aurea
venit. Mundus gravī metū līberābitur. Ille puer deōrum vītam
accipiet deōsque vidēbit, et ipse vidēbitur ab illīs. Mundum reget
antīquīs virtūtibus. Simul atque laudēs et facta parentis legere et
virtutem scīre poterit, agrī beātī dulcēs frūctūs omnibus hominibus
parābunt.Remanēbunt tamen pauca scelera quae hominēs temptāre
mare nāvibus, quae hominēs cingere urbēs mūrīs iubēbunt.
Erunt etiam altera bella, atque iterum Trōiam magnus mittetur
Achillēs.Ubi autem hunc puerum virum fēcerit fortis aetās,
maria relinqentur ā vectōribus, nec nautae pecuniae causā mercēs
mūtābunt. Robustus agricola taurōs iugō līberābit; nōn rāstrīs
tangētur humus; omnis terra omnia feret.
