Today is the 2080th anniversary of Virgil’s birthday.

Maist reverend Virgil, of latine poetis prince,
Gem of ingyne, and flude of eloquence,
Thou peirles peirle, patron of poetry,
Rois, register, palme, laurere, and glory,
Chosin charbukill, chief floure and Cedir tre,
Lanterne, lade sterne, myrour, and a per se
Maister of maisteris, swete sours and springand well,
Wide quhare ouer all ringis thyne heuinly bell.
