Stanzas of 2001

It is this way, to rest and to subside:
That good and bad are marching side by side.
The force of good serves to advantage evil:
Contrast allows good - its weakness hide.

In any habitat, gray wolf is a predator.
No point of hoping, care would make him gentler later.
Get dog for your defense, I say with all the force,
And feed this dog instead, to keep your quarters safer.

Translation by Mykola SEREDA
