Sapphics

87With further members of the set to be added as encountered, perhaps also some additional notes eventually, here’s what I’ve got so far for my set of sapphics

  1. Faulkner, WilliamSapphics [Poetry Foundation]
  2. Morris, Thomas — Sapphics: At the Mohawk-Castle, Canada. To Lieutenant Montgomery [Poetry Foundation]
  3. Sappho (edited by Richard Lattimore) — The Anactoria Poem [Poets.org]
  4. Sappho (read and translated by Jim Powell ) — The Anactoria Poem [Poets.org]
  5. Steele, TimothySapphics Against Anger [Poetry Foundation]
  6. Swinburne, Algernon CharlesSapphics [Poetry Foundation]
  7. Wilbur, RichardC Minor [The Atlantic] Variations on meter here aren’t severe enough to remove it from this set; while in exchange, we get rhyme! And although its setting and message might not be quite intimate enough to send it over for remembering along with our aubades, it at least ought be an oft-read piece in any broader morning collection we get around to assembling.
