Sasingum non kinas
Uwa men sani kamen pwan nioch
Nge mi chok mwitir ne mworono
Saingon ai kapas ngonuk pwipwi “ai tong ngonuk”

Chuukese woman and language
Short translation of the love poem into Chuukese (Chuuk, Fayichuck, Truk, East Lagoon, Lagoon Chuukese, Chuk, Ruk, Trukese).
These islands are magnificent, the blue and clear water of the lagoon contrasts singularly with the color of her eyes. She is brown with a golden complexion, her eyes are of the color of her hair, her life is in the sun, mostly away from the world, she flees people, only nature is her world.
The day she walks the sand of the beaches in search of shells, she makes bracelets, necklaces or just put them at home and watch on them. The evening and the black of the night surround her body, and the wind from the open air, which the fine veil of its curtains passes through, refreshes and envelope her like a mantle which carries her away, far away in resting dreams.
