Find it funny? Ukrainian is the most poetic language and has some of the best literature.

I honestly don't know if off the top of my head I could specifically remember any Ukrainian literature. What would you say is some of the best? I'd love to take a look at it.

Translated works lack the beauty which can only be expressed in Ukrainian. Nonetheless, you may take a look at it - http://taras-shevchenko.infolike.net/taras-shevchenko-poem-i-care-not%E2%80%A6-translation-t-l-voynich.html The main thing is that Ukrainian is a synthetic language consisting of melodic morphemes which allow to create beautiful vocalic rhymes i.e. assonance. This is the only language which may sound so naturally. At least, according to certain linguistic studies.

I might have to reconsider and look at learning Ukrainian then. Is that feature unique even among Slavic languages?

Yes, that's true. Ukrainian has more than 200 k folk songs which is quite a lot. There even was an instance when Japanese who had ever, never known a word in Ukrainian burst into tears - so emotional a song was.

I agree, although Romanian might give Ukrainian a run for its money.
