You’ll Live but I ‘ll Not

You ‘ll Live, but I will not;perhaps,

The final turn is that.

Oh, how strongly grabs us

The secret plot of fate .

They differently shot us :

Each creature has its lot,

Each has its order robust ,

A wolf is always shot .

In freedom , wolves are grown,

But deal with them is short

In grass,in ice , in snow,

A wolf is always shot .

Don’t cry ,oh,friend,my dear,

If in the hot or cold ,

From tracks of wolves ,you’ll hear

My desperate recall.

——-Anna Akhmatova
