To a Girl in a Garden
(c. 610-570 B.C.)
translated by Arthur S. Way
Fragments 121, 123, 122, and 126 combined.
O soft and dainty maiden, from afar
I watch you, as amidst the flowers you move,
And pluck them, singing.
More golden than all gold your tresses are:
Never was harp-note like your voice, my
Your voice sweet-ringing.
poems by Sappho
