Theyreached the arching cavern, man and god as one, and Odysseus took the seat that Hermes justleft, while the nymph set out before him every kind of food and drink that mortal men will take.Calypso sat down face-to-face with the king and the women served her nectar and ambrosia.They reached out for the good things that lay at hand and when they'd had their fill of food anddrink the lustrous one took up a new approach. "So then, royal son of Laertes, Odysseus, man ofexploits, still eager to leave at once and hurry back to your own home, your beloved native land?Good luck to you, even so. Farewell! But if you only knew, down deep, what pains are fated tofill your cup before you reach that shore.”Paraphrase:“Odysseus followed Calypso as they walked towards the arching cavern.
