A Parting of Ways

I'm not sure who wrote this poem, but a friend of mine posted it in a mailing list for women who are interested in Roman culture. It's pretty neat.

Here, Cyprian, is my jeweled looking glass,
My final gift to bind my final vow:
I cannot see myself as I once was,
I will not see myself as I am now.

It kind of reminds me of Sappho--it sounds like something she would have written. Or Catullus, imitating Sappho (which he did on occassion).
