Treasure Island

Anna Akhmatova

(23 June 1889 – 5 March 1966 / Odessa)

But Listen, I Am Warning You


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.
