Sappho – Without Warning

Sappho without warning

Without warning
as a whirlwind
swoops on an oak
Love shakes my heart

    It never ceases to amaze me how such few words…can bring up so many emotions and images. I love this poem.

  3. When falls the dark

    I hear they cry colours

    in graffiti of wall…

    they throw to me in the eyes

    the stolen sunbeams,

    front they die,

    each night.

    I could turn all the spam comments here into a poem of “mots trouvés”.

    The fragments of Sappho’s poetry which we have left are startlingly beautiful. It was she who first called the moon “silvery” and used the epithet “bitter-sweet” to describe love.

    I have two collections of my own poetry dedicated to her – unfortunately neither of them currently in print. But if you would like to read some of my work (and judge for yourself) you can find my book “Naked in the Sea” here:
