by Oleksandr Ivanovych Kandyba (1878 - 1944), as Oleksandr Oles

Bolit' duša moja
Language: Ukrainian (Українська) 
Bolyt' duša moja, bolyt'...
Pekučyj bil' ïï projmaje...
A den' za dnem plyve, bižyt',
a tam i smert' strašna čekaje...

JA žyv... a ščo komu zrobyv?
Kudy ja div čuttja i dumy,
Koly j čyje žyttja zohriv,
Koho na svit ja vyviv z stumy?

Bažav ja til'ky i spivav
Pro nič zemli, pro sjajvo neba
I v ljudy pisnju posylav
Za mene zdijsnyty, ščo treba.
