Bookmark (Possibly) Korean - can someone translate from a pi

    I got this bookmark that came with a used book that I bought. I think the text is Korean but I don't know my Asian languages, it could very well be something else. If someone could translate the text from the picture I'd really appreciate it - I'm just curious what it says. Thanks a bunch in advance. :d/

    Image is attached to post since I can't add links to my post because I'm new; I'd recommend because you don't know me to scan the file with an antivirus.

    This is what is written on it.
    Very famous poem and quotation in Korea though.

    What though life conspire to cheat you -Alexander Pushkin

    What though life conspire to cheat you,
    Do not sorrow or complain.

    Lie still on the day of pain,

    And the day of joy will greet you.

    Hearts live in the coming day.

    There's an end to passing sorrow.
    Suddenly all flies away,

    And delight returns tomorrow.
