Psapfo 9

O Kypris slow
The night between us

For Love's vision
Has journeyed so far

Place your lips
To every cavern of my body

Let the rites burn
O Lady turn back the sun

With your
Unearthly beauty

If my beloved must remain
In Afroditi's shade

Let her shadow then come
To drink from my vineyard

I'm not sure about your title, but it drew me in, so I guess it works.
Your language use is okay and it suits the pacing of the lines.
The theme is a bit soggy, but works well.
One typo [Afroditi]- should be Aphrodite.

~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
