    The SAPPHIC STANZA - derived from the Greek poet Sappho - is composed of three sapphics and an Adonic line.


    Example by Jan Haag:

    excerpt from #121 ADONIC, SAPPHICS

    Sun's rise, moon's set, rain's wild lees, dew drops, sea's calm --
    where will thunder rumble to fall from lightning
    skies and shake the earth's mild desire to rest in
    characteristic

    bliss, untroubled, blameless, quite still in green, blue
    atmosphere, clouds, winds with its longing known, lost?
    Come again pale star, ride across the world's bright
    imagination.
