Work of the Week #4

Totally forgot to do this last week, but whatever…

Switching-up a bit this time; below is a cryptic poem from my book-in-progress Fantasium:

old ones stela

It’s called the “Old Ones Stela,” created by one of Fantasium‘s first race of beings.  Translated into their language:

Yezz ejja urryng; Ke harjeing; Ke cilum zae daukhing; Aeg daukhing.

Auph zan eutheri ta kunkhey; Yadh ijhugh ashuvey; Fwezzy bhakh rouzhe ta khey.

Yadh othellir fwestea; Ke grominwe ca fhyzha; Ke dwarghin vellia.

Ullujh ejja fhou auvor chiggur ta velleu; Ullu dwarkh vi fhou; Ay zhou.

Ullu yammin ghy arphin; Ullu yammin ghy lankhin; Ullu yammin ghy stavin; Aickin.

Kap fhou ce; Velliewe; Fwejjim chade; Aghwae yadhe; Ca ejja thydhwe.

Razhur iche ejja bhakh ullu; Ca yumiyumi bhakh veu; Eggie ca ejja kappi kwervu.

Narrihe ejja tyrrung zae daukhing; Orkhi cang; Ca yumiyumi bhakh ullung.

Orkhi bhakh vi; Vi daed hwithem cai; Ullu swayei; Ullu ejja veuffi; Gavin ullu:

Zazzi hueghe van fhou, hiekhe daed fhou…

Ghaz virrum iche eushing ejja brangwey…

Ezzam ca zazzi vi pulkar…

Yankey chabbo ke sebho…

Pullem aej vi pullem…

Iche fhou dawar aufheng…

Arrumbin zeching ta zechin…

Ydhef ejja iche eushing uveum…

Pella ejja jheffer iche ejja jheffer…

Razhur ejja veghul rastifau…

Othellir ejja cichwa kaerno; Cechung orkhi babhin ca; Ullu ejja jorrie.

Fwezzy fie vaedachi, ngoff ngumbie jheffen.

In English:

Here is a key; To destiny; To freedom at the end; As the end.

On each land of old; A temple resides; Created with the tools of lords.

A marker created; To our home it points; To hopeful salvation.

We do not know the power of salvation; We hope you do; Or can.

We wait for a hero; We wait for an army; We wait for a chance; To strike.

So does she; Our salvation; Made of two; Behaves as one; She is asleep.

Time was not on our side; It should be on yours; Unless it is too late.

Terror is freed at the end; Even her; She should be on our side.

And on your side; You must prove it; We have; We will help; Save us:

Think of the consequences;

May the worthy not always be chosen;

What many can do, few must do;

Imagination defies logic;

Look how you look;

Do not send a king;

Avoid getting lost;

Consider the price of a price;

This beginning is not a beginning;

Time will forgive your future;

The marker is a path to follow; Walk and brace it; We will watch.

Made by its father.  When wars began…

Stay tuned for next week… I’ll try not to forget, as well.
