Как только заходит речь о Гумилеве, все сразу "Жирафа" вспоминают. Даже невероятно образованные и начитанные люди. Почему бы это?

Что-то я про других поэтов такого единодушия не припомню.

P.S. Если не сложно, напишите мне, пожалуйста, какое стихотворение (название) вам первым приходит в голову, когда говорят о:

Unwritten Law

Interesting how we fall in love:
In my case, absolutely. Absolutely, and, alas, often--
so it was in my youth.
And always with rather boyish men--
unformed, sullen, or shyly kicking the dead leaves:
in the manner of Balanchine.
Nor did I see them as versions of the same thing.
I, with my inflexible Platonism,
my fierce seeing of only one thing at a time:
I ruled against the indefinite article.
And yet, the mistakes of my youth
made me hopeless, because they repeated themselves,
as is commonly true.
But in you I felt something beyond the archetype--
a true expansiveness, a buoyance and love of the earth
utterly alien to my nature. To my credit,
I blessed my good fortune in you.
Blessed it absolutely, in the manner of those years.
And you in your wisdom and cruelty
gradually taught me the meaninglessness of that term.
