The text is taken from The Odyssey by Homer. The
translation is by Robert Fitzgerald. ". . . slumber, soft and deep like the still sleep of death, weighed on his eyes as the ship hove seaward . . . her wake/on the
purple night sea foaming. This night at last he slept serene, his long-tried mind at rest."
— Homer
