On the 21st of February the world community celebrates the International Day of Mother Tongue.

 

Спитай себе, дитино, хто ти є,
І в серці обізветься рідна мова;
І в голосі яснім ім’я твоє
Просяє, наче зірка світанкова.
...
З родинного гнізда, немов пташа,
Ти полетиш, де світу далечизна,
Та в рідній мові буде вся душа
І вся твоя дорога, вся Вітчизна.

У просторах, яким немає меж,
Не згубишся, як на вітрах полова.
Моря перелетиш і не впадеш,
Допоки буде в серці рідна мова.
Д. Павличко

І мову її солов'їну.
