My love poem "The mirror" translated into moksha (Moksha Mordvin, Mokshan, Mordoff, Mordov, Mordvin-Moksha) by Olga a translator. A rare poem since there are only 500,000 mordvins who live in Mordovia. Mordov-moksha is a Finno-Volgaic language. A very beautiful young woman speaks it and smiles as she reads me. I like this smile, graceful as much as discreet. It tells me everything about her! There are actually two mordov languages, the second is called erzya. The two are distinct and spoken by several distinct peoples. The Mordvins lived in the Oka region. Allied to the Kazhars then to the Golden Horde, they were submitted by Ivan the 4.
