C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Sappho
 
            The moon has set
    In a bank of jet
That fringes the Western sky,
    The pleiads seven
    Have sunk from heaven
And the midnight hurries by;
    My hopes are flown
    And alas! alone
On my weary couch I lie.
  1
        Sweetest mother, I can weave no more to-day,
  For thoughts of him come thronging,
  Him for whom my heart is longing—
For I know not where my weary fingers stray.
  2
  What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon also be beautiful.  3
