Are you looking for love poems? If so, you will really enjoy The Poems of Sappho: An Interpretative Rendition into English.

While very little remains of Sappho's poetry, existing fragments suggest that she had a romantic interest in those of her own sex. Her poems are written as words spoken from one person to another and speak about the joys and difficulties of romantic love. 

A distinction was not made in ancient Greece between homosexual and heterosexual relationships. Nevertheless, the terms “sapphic” and “lesbian”, both of which refer to same-sex female attraction, were inspired by Sappho's life and work. 

Sappho has had an enduring reputation as a lyric poet across the centuries. In modern times, she has come to be known as a great lesbian poet, and her work is enjoyed by many both within and outside the LGBTQ community.

The audiobook includes the following poems and fragments of Sappho:
