Patriam gives a poetical hint of the personality of the storms; comp. v. 540 below, G. 1. 52, note; Ov. 3 Am. 6. 40, “Nilus Qui patriam tantae tam bene celat aquae.” The notion of generation is carried still farther in ‘feta.’ ‘The home of the storm-cloud, the teeming womb of raging southern blasts.’
