Sappho: One Hundred Lyrics

by Bliss Carman


 

XCVIII


 

I AM more tremulous than shaken reeds,
And love has made me like the river water.

Thy voice is as the hill-wind over me,
And all my changing heart gives heed, my lover.

Before thy least lost murmur I must sigh, 

5
Or gladden with thee as the sun-path glitters.
