“Whom this time should I persuade to lead you back again to her love?”

ff9a3dc3dec9b01fc28f95ce565d0a4a“O my blessed goddess with a smile on your deathless face

you asked me what the matter was this time,

what I called you for this time,

what I now most wanted to happen in my raving heart:

Whom this time should I persuade to lead you back again to her love?”

~ Sappho
