The Complete Poems of Anna Akhmatova | Anna Andreevna Akhmatova
post image

#OnThisDay in 1889 Anna Andreyevna Gorenko was born in Odessa. Better known by her pen name, Anna Akhmatova, she was one of the most important Russian poets of the 20th century. Her clear, concise, restrained style stood out against the more florid works of her compatriots. At odds with her country's Communist government, she nevertheless chose to stay in Russia and document as best she could life under Stalinist rule. #HistoryGetsLIT

I am not a poetry person, but so many people told me to try Mary Oliver. This was my first foray into her work and I absolutely loved it. Her observations about the beauty of simple moments in nature around her took my breath away.

“The man who has many answers
is often found
in the theaters of information
where he offers, graciously,
his deep findings.

While the man who has only questions,
to comfort himself, makes music.”

LiteraryinLawrence That is one cute picture! 4d

Then I step out into the garden,

where the gardener, who is said to be a simple man, is tending his children, the roses.
