Sappho biography :

Coming soon


Poems by Sappho :

Although they are


And their feet move


Before they were mothers

Blame Aphrodite


Cyprian, in my dream

Drapple-thorned Aphrodite

He is more than a hero

I have no complaint

I took my lyre and said

In the spring twilight

It is the Muses

It was you, Atthis, who said

It's no use

Leto and Niobe

Must I remind you, Cleis

No Word

Prayer to Our Lady of Paphos

Sleep, darling

Sounds of grief


Tell everyone

The Muses

To any army wife

To Aphrodite

Tonight I've watched

We know this much

We put the urn abord ship

We shall enjoy it

With his venom


Yes, Atthis, you may be sure

You know the place: then

You may forget but

More Poems


To Aphrodite by Sappho

You know the place: then
Leave Crete and come to us
waiting where the grove is
pleasantest, by precincts

sacred to you; incense
smokes on the altar, cold
streams murmur through the

apple branches, a young
rose thicket shades the ground
and quivering leaves pour

down deep sleep; in meadows
where horses have grown sleek
among spring flowers, dill

scents the air. Queen! Cyprian!
Fill our gold cups with love
stirred into clear nectar
