This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.

αἰεὶ κινδύνῳ θῦμος τῆς πολλὰ φιλούσης ·
ἂν ῥαίηται κηÏ￾', ἦν φιλέοιτο σόος.


Should I have the last word be σόος (for θῦμος) or σόη (for ἡ φιλοῦσα)

Are you using κινδύνῳ to mean "in danger" here? I'm pretty sure you'd have to phrase that idea differently. κηÏ￾’ is κῆÏ￾?
