Byron, Imbued with immortal fire

From Childe Harold

CHILDE Harold sailed and passed the barren spot
Where sad Penelope o'erlooked the wave,
And onward viewed the mount, not yet forgot,
The lover's refuge and the Lesbian's grave.
Dark Sappho! could not verse immortal save
That breast imbued with such immortal fire?

Cf. Sappho's poems at Elpenor
