Sobre mim

Sleep, darling

I have a small
daughter called
Cleis, who is
like a golden
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 flowers
From Sappho

----Translated by Mary Barnard

...Beautiful Sappho's death...


"Vesper. Her eyes were black, with long black lashes; her skin had a look of darkened silver, but was of purest tint and grain; her hair was black and fine and straight-flowing; her features were exquisitely formed, and if less beautiful yet more lovely from sadness; she always looked as if she wanted to lie down and not rise again."
The Day Boy and the Night Girl
<George MacDonald>

"....to assume a modest appearance, enhancing...natural charms and radiant air so that she appeared to be a remarkable person, suited to inspire just as much respect as love."
<Marie-Jeanne L'Héritier>

...Plunged into deep reverie...

"Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels." Francisco De Goya

"And this powerful passion that makes them want so desperately, to acquire beauty and elegance stems from the boundless desire to captivate men."
<Marie-Jeanne L'Héritier>

...Love,...one of those turbulent passions that one can conceal only under the veil of discretion, and even then, only rarely." Ricdin-Ricdon
<Marie-Jeanne L'Héritier>
