In honor of Ukraine
Oh, my dear God! How hard the world,
As life miserable - and I want to live,
And I want to see how the sun shines,
And you want to listen to the sea plays,
As the bird chirps like a grove rustles,
As she begins to sing his song ...
Oh, my dear God, how fun to live!
Ukrainian poet, writer, artist, ethnographer.
Academician of the Imperial Academy of Arts (1860). -
