The Legend of the Hero's Return

 
 

THEY BLESSED MY SHIP WITH SOFT FLOWING WORDS OF FAREWELL.
I GAVE HER PROW TO THE SEA AND HER STERN TO THE LAND.
THE SAILS FLAPPED AGAINST THE SPLINTERY MASTS.
I DROVE ON TILL
I REACHED HOME,
WHERE THOSE WHO LOVED ME WAITED.

SONGS WERE SUNG AND SMOOTH DRINKS RAISED.
MUSIC IN FIDDLE-STRINGS TO THE EVER-HEALING OF ALL ILLS,
THAT WOULD MEND MEN'S HEARTS AND SOOTHE WOMEN IN TRAVAIL.
WITH THE HERO'S FATIGUE I SLEPT.

  

I reached home (Italian: Giunsi a casa)
