I added the Greek text and translation of S.53.  It is a one line fragment that only survives as a citation to illustrate the meter Sappho uses.  There is no context to it, yet each word can be related to words found in other fragments of Sappho.  I also added a link to A. E. Housman's Epithalamium in my discussion of S.104; he clearly was inspired by it and a few of Sappho's other wedding song fragments.
