Inseparable from their first meeting, yes,
The Chestnut hand-in-hand with my Chatterer,
Améti, kataka é canalopé?
Mother, wherefore are you from the great islands?
I can barely bear to write your name, melé,
Is it surprising that as the future stands
Balanced on the tip of a knife, I think back,
I remember my family and those dear?
I still love you all.
If time ran backwards, what would that be like? Would
We grow young instead of growing old, or else
Not remember the moment before-after
The moment we live?
The Capitol in Hympala shines, I know,
Though it is far from my sight. Good kings ruled there.
Should ancient honors be handed down to the
I recommend you do what your pride forbids,
Give in to Justice and leave while you still can,
Give power peaceably into wiser hands,
And most will love you.
I felt I could almost reach out and touch it,
The sea-creature that trembled under my gaze,
As though seeing all the wrong I've done beside
The wrong I will do.
