"Tyrkhang Iwbih" da Victor G. Bareh


Sha 'tiewmatïong la nga peit

Ha khet ki diengbah ba'm kot kheit;

Jingpynhiar mynsiem thiang ba'n iw

H'u tyrkhang nga dem khohsiew.

Ha thaiñ ba ki lyer pyngngad

Ki dang suh sieng khlem blad,

Lem bad tyrkhang jong ki lum bad ki wah,

Junom ban im ngam ngiah.

Ko tyrkhang ba pynkrih

Ïa ki lyer jingiwbih

Ha ri ba puri blei ki ieit,

Ba me suh ki thied hapdeng shrah 'dew-kulong,

Pansngiat ïa me ngan pynphong.


Rongphong pyrthei kim larkam

Ïa me ba ngan pynspong ka nam;

Jynhaw jinglong jingim ba thiang

Ba me pynsieng, ka la biang.

Sha dohnud sakma pynpar

Ïa ki sur jingphawar,

Ba khun ka ri b'la rah soitan sha rngai,

Sha rympei kin wan phai.

'Tiew-tynrai jong ka ri,

Ba dang wan beh ha ngi

Ïa ki lyer sotti juk hyndai,

Ï'u klong snam jingieit la ri ïai kynshait,

Ha lhop pyrthei b'un ym stait.


Sha ri u bnai bad ka sngi,

Kum me, ngam don thapniang ba'n jngi;

Ïa me, ieh wat khang ba ngan bud

Tang da ki sur ka dohnud.

Da bor ba'm i ka khmat briew,

Ïa jingmut to kyntiew,

Na lyndet lyoh ïa ki sap ba ngan kem,

Hangne ba eh ba ngan shem.

'Tiew tyrkhang ba pynher

Khlem kut shuh ïa ki lyer

Ba'n pynsieng iwbih ïa ka bneng,

Ïa longrynieng ban tor jong nga iai pyndap

Da jingpyrkhat ba'm ïap.



"Tyrkhang Iwbih" by established Khasi poet Victor G. Bareh is moving because of the affinity and connection that the poet experiences from a sweet smelling fern.
Mynta ka taïew ngi kynmaw ïa ka lyngkhuh sngi ïap jong u myllung ba radbah ka ri Khasi u Soso Tham ha ka 18 tarik u Nohprah 1940, da kaba ngin post ïa ki poitri ba lah noh synñiang da ki paralok followers jong ngi. ✏️✒️📃
