Definition funny of Sappho:
An ancient Greek poet. Little is known of her life and what litle information we do have comes from her poetry, which consists of one complete poem, several long fragmants, and countless smaller pieces. Reportedly bisexual and had relationships with men and women throughout her life. But women were clearly her main objects of affection; From her, we get the word "sapphic", and the word "lesbian" derives from the Isle of Lesbos, where she spent most of her life.
"For that girl, that lovely maiden; the clinging of her dress makes you shake when you see it, And I laugh for joy." -Sappho. "On the throne of many hues, Immortal Aphrodite, child of Zeus, weaving wiles--I beg you not to subdue my spirit, Queen, with pain or sorrow but come--if ever before having heard my voice from far away you listened, and leaving your father's golden home you came in your chariot yoked with swift, lovely sparrows bringing you over the dark earth thick-feathered wings swirling down from the sky through mid-air arriving quickly--you, Blessed One, with a smile on your unaging face asking again what have I suffered and why am I calling again and in my wild heart what did I most wish to happen to me: "Again whom must I persuade back into the harness of your love? Sappho, who wrongs you? For if she flees, soon she'll pursue, she doesn't accept gifts, but she'll give, if not now loving, soon she'll love even against her will." Come to me now again, release me from this pain, everything my spirit longs to have fulfilled, fulfill, and you be my ally -Sappho.
