[Meaning] I desire.[1] Also [sc. attested is] leli/fqai ["to have been eager"] likewise;[2] from which [comes] also lelihme/nos ["[someone] being eager"].[3]

[1] This active voice is late, the middle li/ptomai earlier. Same or similarly glossing in other lexica and in a scholion on Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4.813 (where the present active participle occurs: web address 1).
[2] Perfect infinitive of li/ptomai; evidently quoted from somewhere, but actually attested only here.
[3] Participle of leli/hmai, quoted from Homer; cf. lambda 242. (But ms F, Adler reports, reads lelimme/nos from li/ptomai.)
