A Dead Poet's Society

Dedicated to Sappho, and other poetic excepts with a Sapphic sensibility.

“My voice rings down through thousands of years
To coil around your body and give you strength,
You who have wept in direct sunset,
Who have hungered in invisible chains,
Tremble to the cadence of my legacy:
An army of lovers shall not fail.”

—   Rita Mae Brown, “Sappho’s Reply”
