Anna Akhmatova - He loved / Он любил

in English

He loved three things in this world:

Evensong, peacocks of white,

And old tattered maps of America.

He despised it when little kids bawled,

Hated tea with preserves, and disliked

Women acting hysterical.

… And I was his wife.

in Russian

Он любил три вещи на свете:

За вечерней пенье, белых павлинов

И стертые карты Америки.

Не любил, когда плачут дети,

Не любил чая с малиной

И женской истерики

...А я была его женой.
Anna Akhmatova
