Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Pax ergo vestras circum circa ambiat aedes
o sponsi & rixas arceat inde procul.
Suaviter ut socio vivit cum turture turtur,
vivatis placidos et sine lite dies.

English.png English translation

Peace therefore be all around your house,
you partners to the match, and may it keep discord far from there.
Just as the turtledove dwells affectionately with its mate,
so may you live out your days in happy intimacy, free from quarrels.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
