I currently live in New Mexico, my childhood home, and the rains have finally come to stay for a brief while. Since New Mexico is a desert (at least where I live), deserts and rain figure prominently in Angosey symbolism. In fact, one of my first translations in the language was a song about rain. Therefore, I'm sharing with y'all an original Angosian poem about rain. Feel free to view this as a translation exercise if you so desire ;-) Tha Anen Keyetheo Savey Ak'halaya ay keyeth aneyna sia lazrona ine Ak'halaya ay keyeth Hresanaya al eth eme. Theraya au keyethya Haleyna sia esinna ine Theraya au keyethya Jenedhaya al eth eme. Aleraya sa keyeth Vatharana sia rathna ine Aleraya sa keyeth Nahavaya al eth eme. The Rain Song It is raining in the night in the desert It is raining My soul is peaceful. The raindrops are falling in the daytime on the leaves The raindrops are falling My heart lifts. The time of rain has come For a time in the mountains The time of rain has come My soul rejoices.
