Odyssey Book VI How Odysseus Appealed to Nausicaa, and She Brought Him to Her Father's House
Nausicaa, why are you so lazy, with such a role model as your mother. Time for you to get married, so go and wash clothes so you may have fresh garments for all your admirers
Take the mules, my child, and anything you want, go ahead and take. The servants shall help you.
Father dear, could you let me have a big cart to wash clothes. You have only five sons, three bachelors who need fresh clothes to wear at the dances.
Lets play with this ball while the clothes dry off!
OH NO! The ball fell into the eddie!
What next, I wonder! What sort of people live in this land? Violent, savage, lawless? Or kindly men who know right from wrong? I seemed to hear something like women's voices, the cry of girls. Perhaps they are nymphs; there are plenty of them on the mountains; the ells and springs and brooks are full of them. But these seem to be using human speech. Well, I'll just go and see.
You don't seem like a fool or enemy so go and wash with oil. We will leave you in your privacy and clothe you when you are done.
I bow to you Queen, pity me please and let me wash and clothe myself.
