Vasily Zuyenok. Silence of the grass
Selected works. Minsk, "Logos", 2010
Small village Uzbore, where the unfolding events of the poem — like a mini-universe, with its joys and woes, the fate of people. Or as the book. And on its pages — as if our Belarus in miniature. At the intersection.
How did you survive, tell the people?
Compared with the grass here is very apt. This is the grass that in every way — through the snow and frost, heat and cold, in spite of any obstacles, hard climb out of the ground, reaching for the sun and dies, collapses under the scythe blade. The destiny of man, the fate of the whole nation … And how can you not remember the time — far and near, when Belarus was deprived of its best sons and daughters of those who raised his head to lift the edge. Who is responsible, who deprived us — what talents and geniuses? Silence of the grass … Indeed, the "needless tests did not happen" and suffering are to ensure that they are not forgotten, so as not to repeat the mistakes. If only you are aware of the Belarusians? Is generation after generation will continue this horrible institution — go to the grass under the knife?
"We are always on the road early, we are always at the beginning of the epoch." The road awaits. Its that leads to his own home, and not the direction of the curve paths, abandoned stray.
Cause of our future,
To avoid broken off roots
To the sacred fire is not extinguished.

And then decisively breaks
Out of the mouth of their printing.
And suddenly blow themselves:
"I can not be silent!"
