I Don’t Like Flowers – Anna Akhmatova

I Don’t Like Flowers – Anna Akhmatova

I don’t like flowers – they do remind me often
Of funerals, of weddings and of balls;
Their presence on tables for a dinner calls.

But sub-eternal roses’ ever simple charm
Which was my solace when I was a child,
Has stayed – my heritage – a set of years behind,
Like Mozart’s ever-living music’s hum.

Anna Akhmatova
