Story – A short story in made-up Old-Germanic language

September 19, 2013

Story with English translation:

Hî reimu, reimu hîran raiman hî sâidan tolls hîns frânun: ‘Wîî ska reima tolls hînu, tolls andra kunrîkan var wîî ska fikta mêd vars qualun, for wîî winna fru sî sî briktan tolls varsa sî werru quala.

He came, came here and he too said to his companion: ‘We will come to him, to the other kingdom where we will fight with our enemies, because we need to win from them who braught among upon us.’

Thî reimu i landan, landan fru qualun i thî saida qualana inhûûrten, for thî werru i platsa var werrus qualan. Thî fikta for sûlven, for folknun fraunan werru thî tailan. Tha werrus svartu for thî, for dauran daura werru thî, thî werrus ennas. Weis sinan daura reimu andra fraunan folknun i thî hailipan, hailipan tolls reimu taidan, taidan in veikan thî werru Godan. Thînes landan werrus freidaun, for thînes land werrus rikksa fraunan andra folknun sî nuu werrus rikksaud.

They came in the land, the land of the enemy and they saw evil in themselves, because they were in the place where there was evil. They fought for themselves, for the folk of which they were a part. It was hard for them, because there where they were, they were alone. But later the other people of their folk came there and they helped, helped until the moment came in which they were the conquerors. Their land was free again, for their land was conquered by this folk, but now they conquered them.

Lidran reimu i lidran sâidan: ‘wîî ska gyîve thine sî werra riktskap, for wîî vaula i Godan, vars Godan sî haftunu gyîvat varsa rikten. I for this wîî skaun rala sî veikan werru rikten. Wîî ska gyîve andra landan, landan in veikan wîî reik werrus, weis thine folknun kana reik blîvun hîran, for Godan haftut dulat sî this landan werru vars. Vars skilla werrusa werru hîran, veikan werru gyîvat fru Godan i krachnuna fru this werrusa werru gyima, thî gyîva varsa vars krachnuna i thîns gyimas.

The leader came and he said: ‘We will give you what is rightful, because we believe in the God, our God which has given us rights. And because of this we shall do what is just. We will give you another land, a land in which we do not live, but your folk can not live here, because God has given this land to us. Our special monument is here, which is given by the God and the powers of this monument are secret, they give us our powers and their secrets.
