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) ~
