SAPPHO TO HESPERUS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I have beheld thee in the morning hour
Last Line: Thou seemest, star of love! To throb with light.


I have beheld thee in the morning hour
A solitary star, with thankless eyes,
Ungrateful as I am! who bade thee rise
When sleep all night had wandered from my bower.

Can it be true that thou art he
Who shinest now above the sea
Amid a thousand, but more bright?
Ah yes, the very same art thou
That heard me then, and hearest now . .
Thou seemest, star of love! to throb with light.
