Ka dohnud kmie jong ka, ka pdang hieb, bad ka lynñiar-kaw. Ka ïam, ka lympat ïalade bad ka pajut la u shñiuh. Ka rah la kawei ka wait bad ka phet kulmar kum ka balamwir. “Balei, balei” la kylli ki briew kiba wan ïabeh haba ki ïohsngew ïa ka jinglynniar, “ balei pha leh kumne?” “ Ngan nai im shuh,” ka la ong. “ Waw! u la shet u dusmon shisngi, ba un phon un shet ïa nga ba ngan bam-doh la i khun. Ngan leh aïu pat ban im khlemrain ha ka pyrthei, la suk ka tap.” La ki khroh, ki pyntngen ïa ka ruh, kam patiaw ; ka phet la ka phet bak-bak. La ki mut ban kem ruh, ym don ba shlan, namar, ka talaiñ da ka wait. Kumta ki shu ïabud lyngngoh kham na pajih, da ka jingsngewsynei kum ban jawummat. Ki kmie ki ïaphet kulmar shane shatai, ki ïapyrta la ki khun ki khun haduh ba ka shnong ka la win hi ñiak.
