We put the urn aboard ship
with this inscription:

This is the dust of little
Timas who unmarried was led
into Persephone's dark bedroom

and she being far from home, girls
her age took new-edged blades
to cut, in mourning for her,
these curls of their soft hair

- Sappho, translated by Mary Barnard.
