To wander long before evening... by Egil21 To wander long before evening... by Egil21
"I Taught Myself To Live Simply" by Anna Akhmatova
    I taught myself to live simply and wisely,
    to look at the sky and pray to God,
    and to wander long before evening
    to tire my superfluous worries.
    When the burdocks rustle in the ravine
    and the yellow-red rowanberry cluster droops
    I compose happy verses
    about life's decay, decay and beauty.
    I come back. (...)
    If you knock on my door
    I may not even hear.





I know a snail isn't much of a present :) Consider the flower too...


Three of my friends celebrate their Birthday today and I wish them all the best:

Álvaro ~TheEternalSpectator, Jane *A-J-Crowley and Sarah ~doyles-slave





:party: Happy B-Day, Parabéns! :iconcupcake1plz:
