Yuriy enjoyed writing Russian Poetry, one of his poems is included below.

А мы умудрились и в трудное время
По честному мыслить и жить.
Так в почве скалистой добротное семя
Дает урожай, и его не сгубить.

Так хочется верить что финиш далече,
И мой продолжается путь.
Мечтаю я в синий и радостный вечер
В день завтрашний вдруг заглянуть.

Так хочется внуков дождаться,
Уверенность приобрести,
В их памяти доброй надолго остаться,
Поставивши точку на этом пути!
