"Peit Cheitai Cheitu" da Saweini Laloo

Updated: Jun 22, 2023


Dang step dang step, chong u woh Ephrin

Ha ka ben kawa rong soo

Ka kot khubor ha kti beit, hajan

Peit u cheitu, peit u cheitai


Man da dep pure u

Te chong u chi slem

Peit u ia ki bru

Wa lai cheitai cheitu


Oh Papun o! Oh Papun o!

Khana ia nga yi ioo phi cheitai?

Ki jingmut u ioosar cha jngai

Ham kylli jingkylli ware o ksu

Peit cheitai, peit cheitu

Wa lai ki kari wa ki bru


Dang step, dang step, chong u woh wa ka ksu u

Ha ka ben kawa rong blue

Ka kot khubor ha kti ïong o

Peit ki waroh arngut cheitai, cheitu.



Original Pnar poem: "Peit Cheitai Cheitu" by @nini_sasa_23 😄😄 Thank you for the poem!
This is a quaint and evocative poem about her "Papun" (grandfather) reading his newspaper in the veranda and then spending hours observing and ruminating on passersby and cars. 🌻🌻💞💞
