Tell me, O Muse, th’ Adventures of the Man

Thomas Hobbes (1588 - 1679)

That having sack’d the sacred Town of Troy,

Wandred so long at Sea; what course he ran

By winds and tempests driven from his way:

That saw the Cities, and the fashions knew

Of many men, but suffer’d grievous pain

To save his own life, and bring home his crew.

Though for his crew, all he could do was vain.

They lost themselves by their own insolence,

Feeding, like fools, on the suns sacred Kine.

Which did the splendid Deity incense

To their dire fate. Begin, O Muse divine.

.
