Comments about Sappho

  • 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!

Best Poem of Sappho

Cleis

Sleep, darling
I have a small
daughter called
Cleis, who is

like a golden
flower
I wouldn't
take all Croesus'
kingdom with love
thrown in, for her

---

Don't ask me what to wear
I have no embroidered
headband from Sardis to
give you, Cleis, such as
I wore
and my mother
always said that in her
day a purple ribbon
looped in the hair was thought
to be high style indeed

but we were dark:
a girl
whose hair is yellower than
torchlight should wear no
headdress but fresh ...

Read the full of Cleis

Standing By My Bed

Standing by my bed
in gold sandals
Dawn that very
moment awoke me
