IS THIS SAPPHO? IS THIS LEGIT?
SAPPHO OH MY GOD (though I prefer the Anne Carson translation):
for when I look at you, even a moment, no speaking
is left in me
no: tongue breaks and thin
fire is racing under skin
and in eyes no sight and drumming
and cold sweat holds me and shaking
grips me all, greener than grass
I am and dead - or almost
I seem to me.
(and I think it’s legit - the mouth movements match!)
