Wild Honey and Gold

Wild Honey and Gold

Today's Quotation from Today in Literature's Email Newsletter

Wild honey smells of freedom
The dust-of sunlight
The mouth of a young girl, like a violet
But gold-smells of nothing....

- - Anna Akhmatova ("Wild Honey Smells of Freedom"), born this June 23,1889
