Rosa male natuwe katu
A Child Tells a Bee
Rosa male – natuwe katu
Wana bambaro – ohoma hitu
Natura nowei – mala simbimee
Mama lamayo – Pani urami.
A child tells a bee that there are prickles
on the stems of Roses. Be careful.
The bee replies, "I'm not touching the stem,
but sucking nectar from the flower."
