STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

wherein many birds nested; and all about the mouth of the cave was a vine with purple clusters of grapes; and there were four fountains which streamed four ways through meadows of green and violet. But Ulysses was not there, for he sat, as was his custom, on the seashore, weeping and groaning because he was kept from his wife and home and country.
When Calypso saw Hermes, she bade him come within,, and gave him meat and drink. When he had ended his meal, she asked him about his errand. He told her that he had come at the bidding of Zeus, and that it was the pleasure of the gods that Ulysses should return to his native country. It vexed Calypso much to hear this, for she wished to keep Ulysses with her always, and she said :
"Ye gods are always jealous when a goddess loves a mortal man. As for Ulysses, did not I save him when Zeus had struck his ship with a thunderbolt, and all his comrades had perished? But let him go-if it pleases Zeus. Only I cannot send him, for I have neither ship nor rowers. Yet will I willingly help him to return to his native land."
Hermes said, "Do this thing speedily, lest Zeus be angry with thee."
So he departed. Calypso sought Ulysses, and found him on the shore of the sea, looking out over the waters, and
weeping, for he was weary of his life, so much did he desire to see Ithaca again. She stood by him and said:
" Long no more for thy native country, nor waste thyself with tears. If thou wilt go, I will speed thee on thy way; but not without sore trouble wilt thou reach Ithaca.
so I will help thee make a raft and I will give thee bread and water and wine, and clothe thee also, so that thou mayest return safe to thy native country, for the gods will have it so."
