Calypso

Cared for a hero named Odysseus,

And got no love in return.

Lovely maiden of perfect smiles,

Yet, she received lots of cries.

Pain, broke her heart again,

So she can follow her father’s will.

O’er an island, she’s waiting in vain.

Calypso was a nymph in Greek mythology, who lived on the island of Ogygia, where she detained Odysseus for several years. She is generally said to be the daughter of the Titan Atlas. (Source: Wikipedia)

This is the first poem I’ve written on my new mini-notebook given by my classmate. I wrote a poem for Calypso because she was mentioned during our discussion about Adventures of Odysseus.
