Anna Akhmatova

(23 June 1889 – 5 March 1966 / Odessa)

A widow in black


A widow in black -- the crying fall
Covers all hearts with a depressing cloud...
While her man's words are clearly recalled,
She will not stop her lamentations loud.
It will be so, until the snow puff
Will give a mercy to the pined and tired.
Forgetfulness of suffering and love --
Though paid by life -- what more could be desired?

A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
