Song[]

Podling[]

Tindyebo-Berna staba doya alori

Shyata-aya beshaba abuma dodo avi

Yamada bi kiraba Vapa so shi

Dbe Aslampia 'pida ya utomshi

"Yeta 'pida sorara?" bau temar' ashai

Aslampia shyayo adado utai

"Apada arwe shi. Apidido dana

aslam malai gas sabaha ya Thra"[2]

Gelfling Translation[]

Within the Endless Forest I wandered

I met a creature dressed in bone white

Its eyes were bright like the silver sea

I knew it was death, came for me

I fell to my knees in front of him and cried

Still he didn't listen to my sad request

"Why me?" I asked in a tearful voice

He sighed before he replied

"I'm merely a servant preforming my duty

It is thra that is calling you home"[3]
