    ........ even after 2600 years, Sappho's verse keep being very inspirational to us all poets....

    An immortal goddess of inspiration from the isle of Lesbos, the tenth muse according to Plato himself and a high priestess of enchantment for the enduring beauty and contemporary appeal of her surviving fragments. She lives on eternally.

    I hope someone can help me. It is my understanding that Winnaretta Singer, the Princesse de Polignac, made many translations of Sappho's poems at the turn of the 20th century (Perhaps between 1900-1914, but possibly not until after WWl) . I would like to find them, but have not been successful so far.

    Is there a Sappho scholar reading this who can help me? If so, please feel free to email me at as soon as you read this.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Here's another one, not included in this anthology:

    Mountain Wind

    Just as the wind
    in the mountains
    blows the oaks
    assunder, so did
    blow my mind.

  • Rose Noir (9/4/2006 1:42:00 AM)

    It's rare to find so many fragments of her divine lyrics. I'm in Arcadia.......!

  • Uriah Hamilton (7/12/2005 7:23:00 AM)

    The greatest poet of them all,
    though only beautiful fragments remain
    because of the Christian Era
    fearing her love!

    does anyone know when the Sappho will be reborn and where? i can't wait

Best Poem of Sappho

You May Forget But

You may forget but
let me tell you
this: someone in
some future time
will think of us

Read the full of You May Forget But

With His Venom

With his venom
and bittersweet

that loosener
of limbs, Love

strikes me down
