Odysseus Enters Into Ithaca

Poem By João Tomaz Parreira

Odysseus who walked in circles
in the sea and arrested the body
and its ears
to the mast of the ship
not gave its ears to the sirens
holding the helm under the waves
and with a bag of winds
in the swollen sails
to enters into Ithaca
where Penelope waits
for one life.

Comments about Odysseus Enters Into Ithaca

The bag of winds was broken by the Odysseus's companions: they thought that it kept a treasure! Then Odysseus will return alone but the troubles won't be finished. I thank you for this poem about a topic that I like very much.
