I found this poem by Ancient Greek poetess Sappho about an hour ago. I plugged in two condenser mics and played/sang spontaneously. This is the fourth take, which seems the strongest.

Recorded at 112bpm, Key: D major.

LYRICS (Sappho, c. 600 BC)

You are lovely
Sweet as honey.
In your eyes
The clear light of love shines.
With outstretched hands
Before me, Aphrodite stands.
