Io Saturnalia! - Hurrah (For) Saturnalia! - Poem by Juan Ponce de León

Io Saturnalia!

Patria est communis omnium parens
Tanta molis erat Romanam condere gentem
Id est
Ventis secundis
Vir prudens non contra ventum mingit.

Hurrah (for) Saturnalia!

Our fatherland is the common parent of us all
Such a great task it was to found the Roman race
In other words
Go with the flow
A wise man does not urinate against the wind.
