The Fox and the Goat
Wokharian Telen

A fox one day fell into a deep well
Hade wokharia, nab diga weditu

He could not get out
Kewetset aykatelan

A thirsty Goat came to the well
Hade zetsema tel nabte diga keseti kadu

He saw the fox,
Ne wokharia re-ee-yu-wa

He asked if the water was good
Hitetu izi my tsubuk diyu

The fox said the water was good
Eti wokharia, my tsubuk ilu

The goat jumped down,
Tel nab taheti zelilu

The Fox told him they both could not get out
Eti wokharia, kntewetset aynekhele-en

The fox said, I will stand on you
Eti wokaria, ab re-itsiha toto kebelieh ilu

I will get out
Ane kewetset iyeh

Then I will get you out
Shu-oh, neseha kewetset iha

The fox got out And ran away
Eti wokharia wetsetn gwoyen

The goat told the fox off
Eti tel neti wokharia negeruwa

The fox said if you were clever You would have looked down To see there is no way out
Nufut nerka entetekhowen, ne taheti re-ee-ha mwotsei kemzeybeloo meteredaaka nerka
