Sappho (Σαπφώ or Ψάπφω) was an Ancient Greek lyric poet, born on the island of Lesbos. In history and poetry texts, she is sometimes associated with the city of Mytilene on Lesbos; she was also said to have been born in Eresos, another city on Lesbos. Her birth was sometime between 630 BC and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570 BC. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired throughout antiquity, has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments.

Sappho was a musician. Her poetry is lyric, that is, composed to be sung to the lyre.

It seems that she knew and loved women as deeply as she did music.

You will have memories

Because of what we did back then

When we were new at this,

Yes, we did many things, then – all

Beautiful …
