Peter wrote asking for help with some Ukrainian rhymes. Here’s his email:
I wonder if anyone can help me with some verses my father use to recite, all I have is some of the words, and the basic ideas behind the verses.
One involved fish and vegetables dancing:
The second involved a father sitting on a spade/shovel (Лопато), a mother sitting on something else (Kocубу?)…
There are commands to a horse in horse language to go left and right (that sounded like Hi-ta, viss-ta)…
And the last line:
їдемо до шлюбy (go off to get married)
Regards, Peter Kosylowicz
If anyone can help Peter with either of these verses, please let us know in the comments below.
