Koval`
Language: Ukrainian (Українська) 
U doly`ni selo lezhy`t`,
Ponad selom tuman dry`zhy`t`,
A na gorbi kraj sela
Stoyit` kuznya nemala,

A v tij kuzni koval` kleple,
A v kovalya serce teple,
A vin kleple ta j spiva,
Vsix do kuzni izzy`va:

“Xodit`, lyudy`, z xat, iz polya!
Tut kuyet`sya krashha dolya.
Xodit`, lyudy`, poranu,
Vy`by`vajtes` z tumanu!”

Ta tumany` xy`tayut`sya,
Ponad selom zgushhayut`sya,
Rozlyagly`sya po polyax,
Shhob zat`my`ty` lyudyam shlyax.

Shhob zakry`ty` yim stezhy`ny`
Ti, shho vgoru jdut` z doly`ny`
V tuyu kuznyu, de kuyut`
Yasnu zbroyu zamist` put.
