ANNA AKHMATOVA: "I am a Bard..."

"I am a Bard..."

(From Avetik Isaakian, Armenian Poetry)
I am a bard – I am a heaven bird,
I need no any richness of the world.

I love a flower and so charming lass
In aromatic springs that never pass.

I love a whisper, very gentle and long,
And, in full silence, a despondent song.
