Jeremiah's Cry by Hryhoriy Chubai

they’d just built the town and hadn’t yet
peopled it already did prophet
Jeremiah cry over it as over a long
deserted one

from his every tear then a sun
grew at every house saying to everyone
it was not a sun but a yellow dandelion

and hardly did the sun utter this than
grey birds clustered all around it
calling themselves dandelion children

but scarcely a whiff blew
than the birds flew away
and never returned
