Dum vivis, sperare decet: tu, rustice custos,
huc ades et nervis, tente Priape, fave.
While there is life 'tis fitting to hope, O rustical guardian!
Here be thou present and thou aid us, Priapus stiff-nerved.
Whilst there is life, 'tis fitting to hope; do thou, O rustic guardian, be present here; and, O stiff-nerved Priapus, be propitious.
