Never knowing what is ahead,
Where you’ll lose, where you’ll find.
Never stubborn, always wiser instead
Keeping good things on your mind.
What you’ve got, hold,
Even more, multiply!
Cultivate good in yourself being bold.
Enable your heart and brain to amplify.
And me, I am with you.
How much we can save!
How beautiful are flowers in dew!
It is time to be brave!

Мудрість – корона царя.
Веде крізь землі,
Веде крізь моря.
Просвіщає шляхи темні.
Плекай Її як квітку,
Як скарб Її хрони.
Зимою, на весні та влітку,
Восени, коли у золоті лани.

(the longest sunny day of the year)
The darkest hour
Is before the dawn.
A bud comes before a flower;
Mud grows a beautiful lawn…
Your hope is your light,
Keep it in sight.
Your anchor is faith, true.
Love is your cleansing bath, keep it if you want to break through.

Keep on working
However hard it is.
You will soon be “forking”;
But now have patience, please.
The darkest hour
Is right before the dawn
You are this city’s flower.
To get the prize we have to work hard like an ant and a prawn.

Rejoice in life and live!
Praise God and thankful be.
You have so much, believe.
Here is an example: an ant and a bee.
They work with an easy heart,
They are glad they are alive
And are happy about every body part.
Don’t worry, one day all flowers thrive.
You are more than that!
You are man!
God will make your road smooth and flat.
Rejoice, enjoy your fruit and bread with bran!

If your work lasts 8 hours,
Work and then have rest.
Have time for your friends and for flowers,
Have time for play, and work with zest.

Le ciel est bleu!
Des oiseaux chantent!
Des arbres sont en fleurs parfumées.
Que peut être mieux?
C’est printemps, est-ce que tu sentes?
Les jours gris ont passé
Et ne sont pas près.
Jette, mon cher lecteur, ta tristesse et souris!
Merci, mais c’est pas assez:
Rappelles aussi que tu es bel(le) et bon(ne) et c’est vrai!

Open your heart.
That’s exactly what you need.
And let us be smart.
Sharpen your soul’s trusty reed –
Open your heart.
Just let some love inside
And it will live and succeed
Flowering with happiness by side.
It’ll be your shield in court, it’ll plead.
Love does not beg, but gives;
Has noting, but is rich;
A real love never dies, but lives.
Love is the treasure available for each.
Iaroslav Saturday 18.02.2006
I love you like crazy –
Although sometimes lazy –
I want to give you all:
Flowers, kisses, support, joy big and small!

Do I still have the wisdom
To be happy about little things?
Can I still spread my little wings;
Listen to a running stream without boredom;
Smell fresh air, flowers;
See the blueness of the sky,
The greenness of the grass growing by;
Marvel at ancient towers?
Oh, I think I do.
I just forget sometimes.
Thank Thee, Father, for these rhymes.
Thank Thee for taking me through!
You should never be afraid
God is always with you.
Be wise and do as He bade
And you will be given your due.
He cares even for the smallest flower.
Will He not care much more for you?
Remember His commandments and you will be stronger than the highest tower.
It is never too late to improve, God loves you and that is true.
