poikilo/qrona, a)qa/nata *)afrodi/ta. Sappho.Beautiful-throned, immortal Aphrodite!
Daughter of Zeus, beguiler! I implore thee
Weigh me not down with weariness and anguish,
O thou most holy!
Come to me now! if ever thou in kindness
Hearkenedst my words,--and often hast thou hearkened,
Heeding, and coming from the mansion golden
Of thy great Father,
Yoking thy chariot, borne by thy most lovely
Consecrated birds, with dusky-tinted pinions,
Waving swift wings from utmost heights of heaven
Through the mid-ether;
