Estelle Anna Robinson Lewis (1824–1880)
 
(From Sappho)

THOU seest yonder snowy promontory
Jutting out o’er the sea. That is the rock
Of Leucaté. From it Deucalion,
To cure himself of love for matchless Pyrrha;
Phobus, Phocension of the house of Codrus,        5
And Cephalus, the son of Dyonesus,
And sad rejected lover of Ptaola,
To heal love’s wounds, headlong impetuous leaped.
