Inspiring Illustrations Tales of Brave Ulysses


Cream
"You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever, 
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun. 
And the colours of the sea bind your eyes with trembling mermaids, 
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses, 
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing, 
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips. 
And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise, 
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea. 
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body, 
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind. 
The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers, 
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter. 
Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell, 
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands 
With tales of brave Ulysses, how his naked ears were tortured 
By the sirens sweetly singing. 
The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers, 
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter. 


The Hellenic people of Hyperborea have carved out small city-states amid this chaotic and eldritch land, but they have not forgotten their past and no legend has greater meaning to a people lost from old Earth than the tales of Ulysses. In the centuries since they crossed the seas and found themselves trapped in this cold hard country countless ships and sailors have been lost striving to find a way to return to their fair Mediterranean home.

Even today a great expedition is being prepared in the city of Ptolemides and adventurers and explorers from all over Hyperborea have come to join the legendary captain Eudoxus in this journey
