_As you set out for Ithaka
hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
angry Poseidon-dont' be afraid of them:
you'll 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.
wild Poseidon-you won't encounter them
unless you bring them along inside your soul,
unless your soul sets them up in front of you.
