Deutsch and Yarmolinsky, comps.  Modern Russian Poetry.  1921.
 
Autumn
By Vyacheslav Ivanov (b. 1866)
 
THE AIR is sad and still. A bright transparency!
Enskied a woman veiled in light invisibly
Upholds a balance high above the clear sun’s pouring,
The instant’s equipoise, serene and frail, adoring.
 
But each sere leaf that from the trees falls, separate,        5
And lays upon the golden scales its trembling weight
May force the balance Summer’s plenty freighted
Down to the wintry regions soon to darkness fated.
