Sappho - I Am More Tremulous Than Shaken Reeds - Read by Vanessa Hart

I Am More Tremulous Than Shaken Reeds
by Sappho (ca. 625-570 BC)

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

— Translated by Bliss Carman
