Končuun ïŋgaj!
When I recall the Yenisei River
It seems a lasso pole’s length;
When I recall my girl-friend
She seems waking up from sleep.

When I recall the Lesser Yenisei
It seems a handspan’s length;
When I recall my beloved friend
She seems smiling softly.

When I recall the Greater Yenisei
It seems like a wrist’s length;
When I recall my one and only
She seems pretending not to know.

How frightful!
