Sappho 7: Fragment 2 Sweetbitter | A Sappho Podcast

    • History

Come to me from Krete to this holy temple, 
here to your sweet apple grove, 
altars smoking with 
frankincense.

Cold water ripples through apple branches,
the whole place shadowed in roses, 
from the murmuring leaves
deep sleep descends.

Where horses graze, the meadow blooms
spring flowers in the winds
breathe softly . . . 
*

Here, Aphrodite, after gathering . . . 
pour into cups nectar
lavishly mingled
with joys.
