  • In love with the (so serious) Isis wings.

    When are we going to dance together? ;)

    this makes me think of you today:

    I have not had one word from her

    Frankly I wish I were dead
    When she left, she wept

    a great deal; she said to me, “This parting must be
    endured, Sappho. I go unwillingly.”

    I said, “Go, and be happy
    but remember (you know
    well) whom you leave shackled by love

    “If you forget me, think
    of our gifts to Aphrodite
    and all the loveliness that we shared

    “all the violet tiaras,
    braided rosebuds, dill and
    crocus twined around your young neck

    “myrrh poured on your head
    and on soft mats girls with
    all that they most wished for beside them

    “while no voices chanted
    choruses without ours,
    no woodlot bloomed in spring without song…”

    (by sappho; translated by mary barnard.)
