C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
My Studies
By Alexander Pushkin (1799–1837)
 
Translation of Thomas Budd Shaw

IN solitude my soul, my wayward inspiration
I’ve schooled to quiet toil, to fervent meditation.
I’m master of my days; order is reason’s friend;
On graver thoughts I’ve learned my spirit’s powers to bend:
I seek to compensate, in freedom’s calm embraces,        5
For the warm years of youth, its joys and vanished graces,
And to keep equal step with an enlightened age.
