Love Ukraine, like sun that you love
Like wind, like grass, and like water,
Whenever you’re happy, in moments of gladness,
At times of trouble, do love.
Love Ukraine when asleep or awake
The glamorous your Ukraine
The beauty of it, always alive and new
And language of hers full of charm.
Amongst the brother-made nations, like garden in dew
She shines through the ages again
Love Ukraine with all of your heart
And all of the deeds that you make…
Volodymyr Sosyura Ukrainian lyric poet.
