"Por La Kylla" da i Dameshwa Rymbai

U lyoh ka jingkylla u wan beh,

Lyngba ki kor jingstad ka por.

Jymbriew ka sang ban kaweh,

Ba wat ha shlem la sdang duh bor.


La ktien duna kiba ngam jylliew,

Ban kren, khana ha khmat ki briew.

Da 'tien nongwei ki thew pyrla,

U stad te dei u ba nang ia ka.


Ki Kings, Lyngz, Rymz, Marbz,

Ha lad pathai phin shem phin lap.

Nongprat lynti sha khyrnit ba phra,

Dung hi ngak! 'nampliang ki samla.


U khulom ksiar uba shad

Ha ka pung balieh ka kot sada

U khlei ia ki symboh jingstad

Kiba dang kren haduh mynta.


Ki 'tiensneng kyntu kynpham

Ki ngam sha thwei jingmut.

Lyngba ki khana puriskam,

Kiba kit laiphew ar jingmut.


Ah! Lada ngi smat bad pynshitom,

La ktien ban shut kum wait ia pom

La nangroi ka jingtip la ka jong,

La riti, dustur, jymbriew ban syngkhong.


Myllung ka Ri la symboh jingstad,

Ha ka thoh ka tar U la pashat,

Mano ban tam ia mawkordor,

Kyntien shongsbai bad bakordor.


Aiu ngin ieh ia longdien mandien,

Hato rong pyrthei ym la ka ktien??

Ki spah pyrthei ki lut bad ki pyut,

Dei jingstad ba neh haduh ba kut.


-Dameshwa Rymbai
