Well, I think I've got this done, although it seems a bit clumsy in
places. I've also translated it into the Silver Towers 'dialect', which
seems to handle it a bit better.
sanur kili noa yeishen el e leshen lel.
land all was language one and words few.
ledi aroa a mordras,
they came from east,
ledi fuenamoa feressoa e sanmer Shinar.
they found dwelled at plain Shinar.
ledi shenoa o ellir,
they said to one another,
aria! leshi kanviitia lezafes.

ledi fesoa lezafes e damieltel.

aria! leshi fesia yeifes e fesir amu a sanir,
