A song from a time long since gone…

The words “totus floreo” are repeated often and apparently means “I am all aflower”, or “most full of life”, I think, it is a nice phrase. Totus floreo for many will be in their 20s, but is a blessing if it returns.

Tempus est iocundum,
o virgines,
modo congaudete,
vos iuvenes.

Oh - oh, totus floreo,
iam amore virginali
totus ardeo,
novus, novus amor est,
quo pereo.

Mea me comfortat
promissio,
mea me deportat
negatio.

Oh - oh, totus floreo,
iam amore virginali
totus ardeo,
novus, novus amor est,
quo pereo.

Tempore brumali
vir patiens,
animo vernali
lasciviens.

Oh - oh, totus floreo,
iam amore virginali
totus ardeo,
novus, novus amor est,
quo pereo.

Mea mecum ludit
virginitas,
mea me detrudit
simplicitas.

Oh - oh, totus floreo,
iam amore virginali
totus ardeo,
novus, novus amor est,
quo pereo.

Veni, domicella,
cum gaudio;
veni, veni, pulchra,
iam pereo.

Oh - oh, totus floreo,
iam amore virginali
totus ardeo,
novus, novus amor est,
quo pereo.
