"During the terrible years of the Yekhov terror I spent seventeen months in the prison queues in Leningrad. One day someone ‘identified' me. Then a woman with lips blue with cold who was standing behind me, and of course had never heard of my name, came out of the numbness which affected us all and whispered in my ear—(we all spoke in whispers there): ‘Could you describe this?'I said, ‘I can!'Then something resembling a smile slipped over what had once been her face." ~ Anna Akhmatova
"The celebrationsOf secret nonmeetings are empty,Unspoken conversations,Unuttered words.Glances that don't intersectDon't know where to come to rest.And only the tears rejoiceBecause they can flow and flow. Sweetbrier around Moscow,Alas! Somehow it is here ...And all this they will callLove eternal." ~ Anna Akhmatova
"The evening sky is gold and vast.I'm soothed by April's cool caress.You're late. Too many years have passed, -I'm glad to see you, nonetheless.Come closer, sit here by my side,Be gentle with me, treat me kind:This old blue notebook – look inside –I wrote these poems as a child.Forgive me that I felt forsaken,That grief and angst was all I knew.Forgive me that I kept mistakingToo many other men for you." ~ Anna Akhmatova
"There is a frontier-line in human closenessThat love and passion cannot violate-- Though in silence mouth to mouth be solderedAnd passionate devotion cleave the heart.Here friendship, too, is powerless, and yearsOf that sublime and fiery happinessWhen the free soul has broken clearFrom the slow languor of voluptuousness.Those striving towards it are demented, andIf the line seem close enough to broach--Stricken with sadness...Now you understandWhy my heart does not beat beneath your touch." ~ Anna Akhmatova
