The Lost Seventh Sapphic Stanza of the Song of Sappho Restored

The Restored Lost Seventh Sapphic Stanza of the Song of Sappho
James M M Baldwin

In July, in the honor of Sapphic history and Sapphic study, I posted a fragmented lost seventh Sapphic stanza from the Song of Sappho. Here is the restored stanza.

The Lost Seventh Sapphic Stanza

Sappho's lamentations lost antiquities
Descendant from Grecian Island of Lesbos
Reputation enduring fragmented parchment
Lamentations lost


Should I have left it lost?
