Moksha love poem
Тонь сильфце зерклатесе -
Строкать монь цеберень вайм.
Капшек! Ведь юмай! Маштписть ли
Последнийтня чувстватнень признаниетнень?

A rare poem
Mordov-moksha is a Finno-Volgaic language. 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.
The Uralic languages, have taken their name from Ural, the mountain range, of the region, where they are found. Their origin is uncertain. It is believed that the proto Uralic was born with populations from present-day, Hungary and Norway. Of these two Mordvian languages, moksha has only 30% of the speakers, the other 70%, speak Erzya.
