STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

On the morrow Ulysses went forth to the well-wooded farm land to see his father, the old Laertes. Quickly he came to the well-ordered farm. There was the house, and all about it were the huts of the servants. He found his father alone in the garden digging about a plant. Ulysses questioned him and saw that his father knew him not. As Laertes spoke of his son, now gone these twenty years, he broke down with grief. Then the heart of Ulysses was moved, and he sprang toward him and fell on his neck and kissed him, saying, "Behold, I, even I, my father, am the man of whom you speak; in the twentieth year have I come to my own country. But cease your weeping, and I will tell you all clearly. I have slain the suitors in our halls and avenged their evil deeds."
Then Laertes answered him, "If you are indeed Ulysses, my own child, show me now a manifest sign, that I may be assured."
Then Ulysses answered him, "Look first on this scar that the boar dealt me with his white tusk on Parnassus. But come, and I will tell you also about the trees in the terraced garden which you gave me for my very own when I was a little child following you through the garden and begging for this and that. Pear trees thirteen you gave me, and ten apple trees, and figs two score, and fifty rows of vines."
So he spoke, and the heart of Laertes melted within him, as he knew the sure tokens that Ulysses showed him. About his dear son he cast his arms and said, "Father Zeus, truly ye gods yet bear sway on high Olympus, for now my son has returned, and the suitors have paid for their insolent pride."
So did Ulysses come back to his home after twenty years.
