Friends are scattered throughout the world
like stars along the clear sky.
Unexpected letters and greetings
reach you in beams.
Now you will not break down in grief,
now you will not perish in sorrow—
throughout the sky stars are scattered,
throughout the world are scattered friends.
-Lina Kostenko
