Man tiruva fána cirya, wilwarin wilwa, ëar-celumessen rámainen elvië ëar falastala, winga hlápula rámar sisílala, cálë fifírula? Man hlaruva rávëa súrë ve tauri lillassië, ninqui carcar yarra isilmë ilcalassë, isilmë pícalassë, isilmë lantalassë ve loicolícuma; raumo nurrua, undumë rúma? Man cenuva lumbor ahosta Menel acúna ruxal' ambonnar, ëar amortala, undumë hácala, enwina lúmë elenillor pella talta-taltala atalantië mindonnar? Man tiruva rácina cirya ondolissë mornë nu fanyarë rúcina, anar púrëa tihta axor ilcalannar métim' auressë? Man cenuva métim' andúnë?
