Remind us, Muse, of that man of many means … Versió lliure de la invocació de l’Odissea de Simon Armitage

.

Remind us, Muse, of that man of many means,
sent spinning the length and breadth of the map
after bringing the towers of Troy to their knees;

of the lessons he learned in the cities of great minds,
and the heartbreak he suffered, roaming the seas
to land his shipmates and salvage his life.

But for all the torture and grief he sustained
his comrades were lost; heedless fools,
they gorged on the flesh of the Cattle of the Sun.
In turn, the God of the Sun made death their domain.

Muse, daughter of Memory and Zeus,
where to start this story is yours to choose.
