Little love poem by the French poet Bellon, translated into ciluba (tshiluba, Luba-Kasai) an african bantu language of the Kasai region in Democratic Republic of the Congo. Luba people who speak tshiluba are 6 million people, most are farmers. I have found more nice to write this translation with the mandombe script which is an alternative to latins letters to write the Congo languages... just under

Tshindidimbi tshieba mu lumuenu

Kasala kanyi kimpe

Enza lukasa kakaji kajimina

Kadji dinanga dianyi dia ndekelu kueba
