Var'okaehtus

Su varju kaetus

Omgi minu kõgõ parõmb laul.

Sa tulõ esi inne, ku seo kaos,

Seod jõvva väega hoita mõnõ silmäpilgu viil.

Turn
Translated into Võro by Evar Saar

The Võro

The interpretation in võro (Võru, estonian dialect) language, of my little verses. Neighbor of the Estonian, võro (fennic branch of the Uralic languages), has its own literary language, and seeks an official recognition in Estonia. The voro is spoken by about 90,000 people in southern Estonia. It is the northern dialect that gave modern Estonian. It is written with the Latin letters and is in danger because of the competition of its neighbor of the north.
