Belle wrote to us asking for help with a Ukrainian poem that she would recite for Christmas in her youth. Here’s her email:
When my relatives would gather for Christmas, 55+ years ago, we children would have to say poems, sing songs, play instruments, etc. after receiving our gifts and before we could open them. I’m trying to find the entire version of a poem that I can only remember the first 4 lines of. It was in the Ukrainian language, and best I can translate it goes something like this:
In the dark forest
Where there walks a sly fox
Grew a fir tree (Christmas Tree?)
And with it a rabbit lived.
or something like that. Does it sound familiar and do you know where I might find the poem?
Thanks for any leads.
If anyone can help with this poem, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
