by Mykola Vorobiov, 1995

If you pick up a pear that rolled away...
or a tomato -- toward the end of summer

and you keep doing this you will soon be tired
and the pear will be bruised
so how can you offer it to your guests?

but the guest will come
if you pick up this pear
and that tomato....

translated from the Ukrainian by Virlana Tkacz and Wanda Phipps
