THE MOON HAS SET... (translation)

Δέδυκε μὲν ἀ σελάννα...

Δέδυκε μὲν ἀ σελάννα
καὶ Πληΐαδες, μέσαι δέ
νύκτες, πάρα δ' ἔρχετ' ὤρα,
ἔγω δὲ μόνα κατεύδω.

Attributed to Sappho, born 7th century BC

THE MOON HAS SET... (translation)

the moon has set
and the Pleiades

it is the middle of the night
time passes

and still
I lie alone
