Replacing Russian with Ukrainian,
Rhythm of rain and rain
– the restaurant rendering restful refuge.
Rising above trivial refreshments,
running down the red lane,
rightly relishing repast.
Ruminating on roaming remote rural ranges,
rapidly remembering relaxing road rides.
Readjusting to reality,
recharged and re-energized,
running through the rain repeatedly.
