Sample text in the Espruar alphabet


Sha'darn teague Nodel
Kiira'daoine quar ath tel'Etriel e lythi
Noarun Quessir'kerradun
Leha thro'Quessir thiramen nehel'feer ivae
Ent usal nevae.
Bren u'aestar'kess d'Corellon
Nesh Sehanine'itae?
Ilphu e d'aestarath tel'quiet
Ausa tel'ennamath enna stacia?
Quessir'deth tel'rillis?


The Sun gazes upon the Moon
Stars play about her as children
He is farther from them than he would wish
But he knows that his love illuminates them
And chases darkness away.
Is this the love that Corellon holds
For His dear Sehanine?
Does it blossom like mine
With the birth of each star?
How does he endure the flames?
