I Will Leave Your White House
September 12, 2012 § Leave a comment
I will leave your white house and tranquil garden,
Let life be empty and bright.
You, and only you, I shall glorify in My poems,
As a woman has never been able to do.
And you remember the beloved
For whose eyes you created this paradise,
But I deal in rare commodities ~
I sell your love and tenderness.
~ Anna Akhmatova (1889 – 1966) ~
