Inspired by I Will Leave Your White House
By Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966)

I will leave your white house and tranquil garden.
Let life be empty and bright.
You, and only you, I shall glorify in my poems,
As a woman has never been able to do.

And you remember the beloved
For whose eyes you created this paradise,
But I deal in rare commodities -
I sell your love and tenderness.
