I got  Anna Akhmatova

Anna

Anna Akhmatova was a Russian poet who wrote during the Stalin era. Like her, you may consider yourself a strong character capable of balancing sensitivity, passion, and reason. Together you could probably spend hours discussing everything from your mutual passion for justice and freedom to your love of peonies and spring. Now, lay down your bow and arrow, put on some Chopin or Rachmaninov, and check out this stirring poem by your bestie.

“You Will Hear Thunder”
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.
