Portrait of Anna Andreyevna Akhmatova    Anna Andreyevna Akhmatova


Высоко в небе облачко серело... / The cloud up in the wintry sky was furry...
Сжала руки под темной вуалью... / Dark my veil. Hands clenched painfully, tightly...
Я научилась просто, мудро жить... / A simple way of life I've learned and wise...
Ты знаешь, я томлюсь в неволе... / I strain against my bonds, and languish...
Вечером / Evening  
Покинув рощи родины священной... / Once having left my homeland's sacred groves...
Мне голос был. Он звал утешно... / I heard a voice. It promised solace...
Пусть голоса органа снова грянут... / O let the organ, many-voiced, sing boldly...
Тот город, мной любимый с детства... / This wintry city where I wandered...
Мне ни к чему одические рати... / Unsuited to my purpose is the rhyming...
