Deutsch and Yarmolinsky, comps.  Modern Russian Poetry.  1921.
 
Work
By Alexander Pushkin (1799–1837)
 
HERE is the long-bided hour: the labor of years is accomplished.
Why should this sadness unplumbed secretly weigh on my heart?
Is it, my work being done, I stand like a laborer, useless,
One who has taken his pay, alien to unwonted tasks?
Is it the work I regret, the silent companion of midnight,        5
Friend of the golden-haired Dawn, friend of the gods of the hearth?
