By Sappho


Raise up the roof-tree — A wedding song!

High up, carpenters — A wedding song!

The bridegroom is coming, The equal of Ares

Much bigger than a big man


Epithalamium , by Sappho

Happy bridegroom, Hesper brings

All desired and timely things.

All whom morning sends to roam,

Hesper loves lead them home.

Home return who him behold,

Child to mother, sheep to fold,

Bird to nest from wandering wide:

Happy bridegroom, seek your bride.
