My interpretation of one of the Alexander Pushkin's poems.

Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin (06.06.1799-10.02.1837) is the greatest Russian poet and writer. Today I translated one of his poems to my friends at EC.

If your life would deceive you,
Don't be angry, don't be sad!
Calm yourself when you meet troubles:
Day of joy soon you will get.
Heart lives only in the future;
Boredom just is having you:
Everything is a small amount,
Don't be angry don't get shout;
Everything will go away,
What have gone like a pleasant moment
In your memory will stay.

To translate one poetry from one language to other is the most difficult assignment , it certainly required to burn the mid night oil and having good linguistics skill in both languages.. i think ....good translation...u did good job.
