Wa’wan Efnoso Wawan
by Edgar Cairo

Wan njun fasi fu e wegi,
wegi leki fa wi musu de,
di moro de f’ wi srefi, pe
nojaso, sma e lekti tumsi.

Te sosani tan heb’ en ankra
nain a gronwegi fu wi kra,
dan fosi, wi kan libi baka
leki sma di kis’ densrefi.

Dan a so, mi e wai mit’ ju
fu pe w’ ben kibri, joisti
f’ no kan mit’ makandra ete.
M’ e sor’ fesi agen fu gwe
go kenki tron wan trawan:
wakaman, sonte f’ en w’wan!
Ef’ noso wa’wan sma, sma w’wan.
