100 untimed books: honey

43. honey

43. honey

Here budding flowers possess a sunny
Pasture where steeds could graze their fill
And the breeze feels gentle as honey…
Kypris, here in the present blend
Your nectar with pure festal glee.
Fill gilded bowls and pass them round
Lavishly.

Sappho, trans. Aaron Poochigian
