Come Sappho (poem)

In some distant place, I remember...

Come Sappho, come here Leave Aphrodite's Star Your omens are the diamond letters I find written in my heart

I hope to catch the eye of a Muse Not by the size and shape of my body

or with a perfect voice

But like a dream that arrives

On a silent evening with its thunder Where nothing seems changed

Yet in an instant your eyes flood

with lightning
