Quote to remember:

Play, play, kid small.
And violins and cymbals.
And I'm going to play in tune,
After all, the Crawshay will not live.

Indeed, in the pan chop up angry,
Father killed with sticks,
Mother longs, sister crying:
"Where are you going, nebaracha? …"

Where can I go? Dear God!
Go to a world in off-road,
We werewolf abyarnusya,
With the happiness you look back on.

Be well, my mother cute!
That you have not given birth,
That you did not feed me,
Shchaslivshaya you have been!

I was born to a hawk,
I would have no masters abyvsya:
In serfdom would not have driven,
In the recruits would not have taken
And Muscovites not given.

I shepherd age NOT be alone,
In Moskal difficult lives,
And I'm afraid to grow,
Where am I, a poor, abyarnusya?

Oh, kazháne, kazhané!
Why did not you got for me?
That I no longer grown
yes kalec from his father.

Pavljuk Bagri
