Kuzma petrov-vodkin, ritratto di anna akhmatova, 1922.JPG  

As a white stone in the well's cool deepness,
There lays in me one wonderful remembrance.
I am not able and don't want to miss this:
It is my torture and my utter gladness.

I think, that he whose look will be directed
Into my eyes, at once will see it whole.

~ Anna Akhmatova ~
