The Fire-ling

I stumbled upon a fire-ling. In a hole,

deep in those dark woods,  I placed it.

The forest was consumed by the ensuing flame.

In matters of courage, where lies the difference

Between a novice and the veterans?

Thath-thari-kita thath-thari-kita thath-thohm.

I stumbled upon a fragment of fire. I placed it,

deep in those dark woods, inside a cavity.

The forest was consumed by the ensuing flame.

In matters of courage, where lies the difference

between the young and the old?

Thath-thari-kita thath-thari-kita thith-thohm.
