W/W: Unrequited: Sappho fr. 39

Tibi, autem, Atthi, me curare invisum est, ad Andromedam vero volas.

Ἄτθι σοὶ δ ἔμεθέν μεν άπήχθετο
φροντίσδεν, ἔπι δ᾽ Ἀνδρομέδαν πότῃ

--Sappho, fr. 39; translated from the Greek by Christian Frederick Neue, 1827.

But you despise me, Atthis, and fly into Andromeda's arms instead.
