Will none say of Sappho
Sappho (c. 630 bce-c.570 bce), Greek poet
translated by Bliss Carman (1861-1929), Canadian poet

Will none say of Sappho,
Speaking of her lovers,
And the love they gave her, –
Joy and days and beauty,
Flute-playing and roses,
Song and wine and laughter, –

Will none, musing, murmur,
"Yet, for all the roses,
All the flutes and lovers,
Doubt not she was lonely
As the sea, whose cadence
Haunts the world forever."


from Sappho: One Hundred Lyrics (1907)
