Chomu?
Language: Ukrainian (Українська) 
Chomu ya barvinkom v gayu ne stelyus`,
De nizhky` tvoyi lastivkamy` litayut`...
De ruky` lileyi na zustrich komus`
Kvitky` lisovi prostyagayut`?

Chomu ne litayu ya vitrom v gayu,
De vvecheri syayesh ty`, zore?
Sxopy`v by` na kry`la ya ptashku svoyu,
Odnis by` za gory`, za more.
