The Muses to Sappho

Texts

οὐκ ἄρα σοί γε ὄλιζον ἐπὶ κλέος ὤπασε Μοῖρα
ἤματι, τῷ πρώτῳ φῶς ἴδες ἀελίου,
Σαπφοῖ: σοὶ γὰρ ῥῆσιν ἐνεύσαμεν ἄφθιτον εἶμεν,
σὺν δὲ πατὴρ πάντων νεῦσεν ἐρισφάραγος:

μέλψῃ δ᾽ ἐν πάντεσσιν ἀοίδιμος ἁμερίοισιν,
οὐδὲ κλυτᾶς φάμας ἔσσεαι ἠπεδανά.

— Paton edition

No little fame, Sappho, did Fate grant thee on the
day thou didst first see the sun. For we consented
that thy utterances should be immortal, and the
Father of all, the Thunderer, approved. All men
shall sing thee, and thou shalt not lack glorious
report.
