Best Poem of Sappho

Awed By Her Splendor

Awed by her splendor
stars near the lovely
moon cover their own
bright faces
when she
is roundest and lights
earth with her silver

Read the full of Awed By Her Splendor

With His Venom

With his venom
and bittersweet

that loosener
of limbs, Love

strikes me down
