Dikt; He is More Than a Hero av Sappho

He is more than a hero
 he is a god in my eyes--
 the man who is allowed
 to sit beside you -- he


who listens intimately
 to the sweet murmur of
 your voice, the enticing

laughter that makes my own
 heart beat fast. If I meet
 you suddenly, I can't

speak -- my tongue is broken;
 a thin flame runs under
 my skin; seeing nothing,

hearing only my own ears
 drumming, I drip with sweat;
 trembling shakes my body

and I turn paler than
 dry grass. At such times
 death isn't far from me
