"U Soso Tham" da i Mebatei L. Khongsti

Updated: Jun 10, 2023


Katba synñia ka nang tap lup,

Ïa Ri Khasi ba ieit jong ngi,

Katta ki khlur ki nang ïai paw

Jingmaham b'la slem bah jong phi.


Ki jingphohsniew ba pashat jngai,

Kum mawbynna ha syngkhlieh thiah,

Lyngkor bym don ba kitkhlieh lem,

Ha lade hi phi shim ban bah.


U khulom te bad phi mynshwa,

U sngewthuh lut kaei phi mut,

Lynti ba ïaid ki khun ka Ri.

U la dep tip haei kan kut.


Ko 'peh sylli ko 'tiew dohmaw,

Satang ki jingpyrto ki nam,

Jingstad maïan d'u Blei la bsut,

Hapoh jong phi ko Soso Tham.


-Mebatei L. Khongsti
