Poem of the Week 2014/33

I had something else planned for this week and then a nasty virus knocked me flat for several days, so I am once again calling on Sappho to see me through:

My lovely friends

How could I change
towards you who
are so beautiful?

Sappho

Lovely readers, take this beautiful fragment as thanks from me. This is from the Mary Barnard translation.

Get better, Sappho, I mean, Patrick. Maybe you need Healing Through Presents. I'll see what I've got in stock.
