Evening, night

Ivan Petryshyn 1957 (Rava Ruska)

Evening, night,
The stars are bright,
Somwhere's day,
Somwhere's night,
Someone's sleeping,
Someone's not,
A few words,
And, thoughts-
Just lots.
Someone's happy,
Someone's sad,
Thinking we'll,
Reacting to the bad.
Some stars are ready
To give us a shelter,
Line up those,
Who are elder,
Who are older,
Who are young,
Be all ready
For some fun.
Ivan Petryshyn
