Anna Akhmatova

(23 June 1889 – 5 March 1966 / Odessa)

Greetings!


Do you hear the soft rustle
beside your table?
Don't bother to write
for I'll come to you.

Is it possible you are angry
with me like the last time?

I am with you in your bright, simple room.
Don't chase me away
to where the cold, murky water
flows under the bridge.

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
