Sappho

By The Brothers Poem

But you’re always chattering that Kharaxos
comes, his ship with fully stuffed hold. As to that,
Zeus and the gods only know, but these thoughts should
not be in your head.

Instead let me go, having been commanded
to offer many prayers to Hera the Queen,
that his undamaged ship should deliver up
Kharaxos to us

here, finding us safe and serene. And as for
the rest of it, to higher spirits leave it
now, for calm seas often follow after the
squalling of a storm;

for those who’s fortunes they of Olympos send
a spirit to turn from utter disaster
into joy, are in receipt of great blessings
and prosperity.

And if Larikhos raises his head to the
fullest, and he shall therefore become a man,
from this heavy-weighing depression we shall
lift up ours and stand.
