As you set out for Ithaka, hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
Laistrygonians, Cyclops, angry Poseidon, dont be afraid of them:
youll never find the things like that on your way
as long as you keep thoughts raised high,
as long as a rare excitement stirs your spirit and your body.
Laistrygonians, Cyclops, wild Poseidon, you wont encounter them
unless you bring them along inside your soul,
unless your soul sets them up in front of you.
