Re: ulysses returns

Is it the one from Joachim du Bellay "Heureux qui comme Ulysse..." ?
I'm so happy you decided to go with french poems, even if it doesn't get much echo around here.
I think your designs are amazing enough on their own, and one doesn't really need to know the poem it's from to like it.

Re: ulysses returns

i finally found ( searched) a good translation of this poem,Translated by A. S. Kline

Happy, the man who finds sweet journey’s end,

Like Ulysses, or he of the Golden Fleece,

Returning home, well-travelled, wise, to Greece:
To live life out, among his own again!

Alas, when will I see the soft smoke rise

From my own village, in what far season

Shall I gaze on my poor house and garden,

Which are my province, and the greater prize?


My love’s deeper for what my fathers’ built,
Than Roman palace-fronts of marble, gilt;

My love’s deeper for good slate; more rare



My love for my French Loire than Latin Tiber;

My Liré than the Palatine Hill; and more

Than the sea breezes, the sweet Angevin air.
