Rumil's tengwar

Someone a while ago asked about the tengwar of Rumil, Tolkien's first elvish
alphabet. A link was given to a site with a few examples, and I fell in love
with the script. In fact, I decided to adopt it for Bulyth, my
gypsy-language. Attatched is a small jpeg of a page in the "saeras", the
Bulyth word for the sarati. Below is a transliteration and translation.

(Arhemo·at ar Thenca Edu)
Thydo fedo·at Andryn puleu anca cetyn na uchyno rhor. Anca shamela, anca
myfeda bo anca ostna. Canrhyn·at Corshyn chameu la Andryn bo rho caseu, "su
baedo, bo su chameu lath rhoco su chauthen daeryn thyth".

(The Belt of Seven Metals)
Andryn, the great smith, made many things in his forge. Beautiful things,
useful things and strange things. Corshyn the Bard came to Andryn and he
said, "I am young, and I have come to you because I want your wisdom".

So, what do you think?

Lo deu nu preca êl'aisún necoui.  God prays at noone's altar.
