    But first Elpenor came, our friend Elpenor,
    Unburied, cast on the wide earth,
    Limbs that we left in the house of Circe,
    Unwept, unwrapped in sepulchre, since toils urged other.

    Yourself a newborn bard of the Holy Ghost, cast behind you all conformity, and acquaint men at first hand with Deity.
