Thanks to Homer
Hail, renowned aged one, glory of all Hellas,
hail father of Muses, and hail, o law of the wise;
for you outstrip the thoughts of all men.
Homer, sole light of good poets,
The nations and land of Pelops held sway at first,
but now the people of the Venetians loves you greatly.
Long as the waves master the sea and fruit the ground,
You shall be the memorial both of Achilles and of
the deeds of Odysseus.
Not with tears shall I honor you, though you lie buried-
you, always glorious to our eyes.
