Sappho: One Hundred Lyrics

by Bliss Carman


 

LXIV


 

AH, but now henceforth
Only one meaning
Has life for me.

Only one purport,
Measure and beauty, 

5

Has the bright world.

What mean the wood-winds,
Colour and morning,
Bird, stream, and hill?

And the brave city

10
With its enchantment?
Thee, only thee.
