      Cignoro hrobosa

      Postby Kwisatz » Sat Mar 07, 2015 4:38 am

      I found something today.

      There is a text in Chakobsa:

      "Cignoro hrobosa sukares hin mange la pchagavas doi me kamavas na beslas lele pal hrobas!"

      and the explanation was:

      "It was Chakobsa, one of the ancient hunting languages, and the man above them was saying that perhaps these were the strangers they sought."

      but in fact real meaning was different.

      Compare with this text:

      "Cignoro hrobosa
      Hin sukares rosa
      Mange la pchagavas,
      Doi me na kâmavas.

      Beš'las piranake,
      Hrobas hin joy mange,
      Pchgavas, choč žanav
      Pal lele avava
      Te me ne brinzinav.
      The me počivinav."

      "On her little tomb there grows
      By itself a lovely rose,
      All alone the rose I break,
      And I do it for her sake.

      I sat by her I held so dear,
      Now her grave and mine are near,
      I break the rose because I know
      That to her I soon must go,
      Grief cannot my spirit stir,
      Since I know I go to her!"

      There is a belief allied to this of the power of the dead in graves to work wonders, to the effect that if any one plucks a rose from a grave, he or she will soon die. In this song a gypsy picks a rose from the grave of the one be loved, hoping that it will cause his death.

      Nice find man, nice find!
      In short, the Jihad is over. It ended just as SandRider predicted it would, not with a bang or even a whimper, by simple attrition.
