This is a continuation of Hesiod's Theogony. I wrote it some time ago, but
only today had time to type it in.

Wute wekomun(u) tekenunu kaner disikiwet(u)
Spirits  text weaver to sing taught
Kanes(e) dulikes(e) *dume yuwenes howiyes(u) sekewenete
Songs sweet while young sheep watching
Hupere saki beregu dese beregesu
Over holy mountain goddesses of mountain
Dugatere Diyusu hagisun(u) kapenete
Daughters of the Sky shield-grasping
Hoyine koso weredos(u) hegi dekewenet(u)
First these words (to) me said
Wos(u) hagori howiyeweri, gewiba! *Sotome esetes(e)
You rustic shepherds, shame! Bellies you are
Ne weri. We *satisun(u) gonomas(u) *nederuyos(u) *takere
Not men. We enough know lies to make
Dimone we menan(a)*deruyun dekere *weyudon(o)
Time we mind truth to say skill
 As before, vowels in parentheses are spellings adapted to match Rihana-ye
forms (all CV), but are not pronounced.
