Choctaw love poem

Apisa anuka chi holbät toba yät,

äm ataloät toba aiukli moma i shahli,

I hokakosh tushpa hosh kania,

“Chi Hullo Li” yämma kosh äm isht aiopi.

Apisa anuka chi holbät toba yät,

äm ataloät toba aiukli moma i shahli,

I hokakosh tushpa hosh kania,

“Chi Hullo Li” yämma kosh äm isht aiopi.
