Peisinoe, Aglaope, and Thelxiepeia see a massive ship approaching their island. They are surprised and shocked because they usually only see a ship once a year.
The Sirens observe the ship and realize that the crew has beeswax in their ears. They also wonder why Odysseus, who is tied to a pole, wants to suffer through their enchanting song.
We let them go!
I can't believe we didn't catch him.
I'm so disappointed,,,
The Sirens are unprepared to sing their song so they have to quickly get ready. They also have to make a ladder out of sea foam so the crew can climb down into the deadly waters.
I feel like I love him...
The ladder was of no use because Odysseus resisted and did not climb down. The crew was unaffected because they could not hear the lethal song.
The Sirens are disappointed in themselves because they let Odysseus and his crew escape. They have never been unsuccessful and this comes as a huge shock to them.
Peisinoe, Aglaope, and Thelxiepeia find themselves head over heels for Odysseus. No sailor has ever shown such strength and power in resisting their song. The Sirens will forever be in love with someone they will never see again.
