You Will Hear Thunder | Anna Akhmatova (1889–1966)

You will hear thunder and remember me, 
And think: she wanted storms. The rim 
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson, 
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire

That day in Moscow, it will all come true, 
when, for the last time, I take my leave, 
And hasten to the heights that I have longed for, 
Leaving my shadow still to be with you.

Anna Akhmatova, You Will Hear Thunder (1889–1966)
