If you were music, I would listen to you ceaselessly, and my low spirits would brighten up.

– Anna Akhmatova

Russian poet Anna Akhmatova was born Anna Andreyevna Gorenk on June 23, 1889. She started using a pen name in her teens after her father told her he never wanted to see poetry published under his “respectable” name.
