Brief Definition

A Sapphic Stanza is a type of poem that is typically an Aeolic verse that spans four lines. However, more properly three lines in the poetry of Sappho as well as Alcaeus where there is often no word end before the Adonean. This style of poem was created and formed by Sappho though later was also used by his contemporary Alcaeus.

This style of poetry would later be adapted for English use and eventually arrived at the form we know today. This type of poem could be written about any subject the poet wishes to write about. As long as the poem follows the verse law and line rule, the finished piece would be considered Sapphic Stanza. Many literature majors enjoy studying this type of poetry, as its roots in Latin and Greek add to the general theme and feel of such poems. This style of poetry allows more to be conveyed in a way that isn't typically seen with modern poetry styles. 

Sapphic Stanza Poem Example

Beauty Of Nature : alliteration

Gazelles grazing gaily on golden green grass
Glaciers glittering gold like gleaming glass
Gardens glowing with Gulmohur and Gold stars
Golden gifts of God.
