I zolotoyi i dorogoyi
Meni, shhob znaly` vy`, ne zhal` 
Moyeyi doli molodoyi: 
A inodi taka pechal` 
Ostupy`t` dushu, azh zaplachu. 
A shhe do togo, yak pobachu 
Malogo xlopchy`ka v seli. 
Mov odirvalos` od gilli, 
Odno-odnisin`ke pid ty`nom 
Sy`dy`t` sobi v starij ryadny`ni.
[Meni zdayet`sya, shho se ya, 
Shho ce zh ta molodist` moya.]1
Meni zdayet`sya, shho nikoly` 
Vono ne bachy`ty`me voli, 
Svyatoyi volen`ky`. Shho tak 
Daremne, marne proletyat` 
Jogo najkrashhiyi lita, 
Shho vin ne znaty`me, de dity`s` 
Na sim shy`rokim vol`nim sviti, 
I pide v najmy`, i koly`s`, 
Shhob vin ne plakav, ne zhury`vs`, 
Shhob vin de-nebud` pry`xy`ly`vs`, 
To oddadut` u moskali.
