But Listen, I Am Warning You Poem by Anna Akhmatova

But Listen, I Am Warning You

Rating: 2.9


But listen, I am warning you
I'm living for the very last time.
Not as a swallow, nor a maple,
Not as a reed, nor as a star,
Not as spring water,
Nor as the toll of bells…
Will I return to trouble men
Nor will I vex their dreams again
With my insatiable moans.

'Nor will I vex their dreams again With my insatiable moans' - The poem ends beautifully! Loved the expression 'insatiable moans'.
