Sui Guil

Such is Life

Mi moth gwilwileth ortha,
A sîr lhûg ‘ond awartha.

Sui guil, sui guil.

Or ael heledir dortha,
Di ‘olf dhannen lim dartha.

Sui guil, sui guil.

Mi ‘aladh melethyr1 erthar,
Nu Ithil ‘ael aderthar.

Sui guil, sui guil.

In a pond, a butterfly rises,
By a stream, a snake abandons a rock.

Such is life; such is life.

Over a pool, a kingfisher dwells,
Under a fallen branch, a fish survives.

Such is life; such is life.

In a tree, lovers meet,
Under the glimmering Moon they reunite.

Such is life; such is life.

Reconstructed Words:

1. Melethor
Assuming that Melethril (female lover) and Melethron (male lover) are made from meleth+-or+gender suffix, that would mean that the gender-less version would be Melethor.
