ODYSSEY 13

Odysseus finished his story,
And they were all spellbound, hushed
To silence throughout the shadowy hall,
Until Alcinous found his voice and said:

"Odysseus, now that you have come to my house,
5
High-roofed and founded on bronze, I do not think
You will be blown off course again
Before reaching home.

Hear now my command,
All who drink the glowing wine of Elders

Daily in my halls and hear the harper sing:
10
Clothes for our guest lie in a polished sea-chest,
Along with richly wrought gold and all the other gifts
The Phaeacian lords have brought to the palace.
But now each man of us gives him a cauldron, too.
We will recoup ourselves later with a general tax.
15
It is hard to make such generous gifts alone."

They were all pleased with what Alcinous said.
Each man went to his own house to sleep,
And when Dawn's rosy fingers appeared in the sky

They hurried to the ship with their gifts of bronze.
20
Alcinous, the sacred king himself, went on board
And stowed them away beneath the benches
Where they would not hinder the rowers' efforts.
Then they all went back to feast in the palace.

In their honor Alcinous sacrificed an ox
