Happy Halloween! This week’s post is a Finngreek poem, using words we’ve learned over the past 3 months.

Sō̂ma (Person)

Helleno-Uralic:

tʰúellan nóītā kǐdạ́
to sō̂ma iaró
mḗlē rotʰízẹ mukʰá
to kaũma to págos

kǐ́rios leúẹ hapsín
daídalo nē̂ma
áīma ripízẹ vē̂non
aídālo ħrē̂ma

English (literal):

windstorm seer praises
the person divine
oar dashes riverbends
the heat the frost

master throws net
artful thread
wind fans ship
unseen treasure

English (revised):

the seer praises the windstorm
the divine being
the oar dashes rivers
the heat and the frost

the captain casts the net
an artful strand
the wind fans the ship
a hidden treasure
