The Shores of Troy
Quintus Calaber (c. 4th century)
Translated by H. H. Milman

AS rose in heaven the morning clear and bright,
Ida’s long towery ridge appeared in sight;
Next Chrysa’s isle, and Smintheus’ holy fane,
Then bold Sigeum beetling o’er the main;
And great Pelides’ tomb,—that point alone        5
With gentle care Ulysses to the son
Delayed, far rising o’er the waves, to show,
Cautious to make the deep but slumbering woe.
