In the forest, on Pandora,
Over the thundering rocks
Trees rustle, animals scurry,
And there lies the lone na'vi

Here I sit and rest,
Under the sleepy gaze of Eywa
I feel the soothing calm,
In the blessed silence of the forest

Under the high canopy's of Pandora,
Here i find peace...

The breeze of the winds,
Carrying the scents of those past
The living world,
In perfect balance

But the moment is not everlasting,
It is a fleeting experience, like the gusts
My time has come,
And I must leave

With a sad hope,
To return once more
I blink my teary eyes,
Awake to the world

The solitude of my dream,
Is now a mere memory
Will it return,
I know not

Resting my head,
I slept once more
Hoping to dream again...
I could say a thousand words to describe Pandora, i guess i have to settle for a few verses...

mì-na'rìng, mì-Pandora,
in the forest, on Fandora,
em Iknimaya-ri,
over the Thundering Rocks,
ay-utral r<er>ikx, ay-ioang r<er>ikx,
the trees are moving, the animals are moving,
tsatseng nì'awtu na'vi-ri tok,
there is a lone na'vi,

fìtseng-ìri oe 'ì'awn ni-mawey,
here I am, calm,
ke em Eywa-yä le-mawey-a tì-kame,
under Eywa's peaceful gaze,
tì-mawey-ìl t<er>ìng poe-yä fpom-ti,
her calm gives me peace,
mì tì-fnu a-swok na'rìng-ä,
in the sacred silence of the forest,

ke em ay-utral a-tsawl Pandora-yä,
under the big trees of Pandora,
fìtseng oe lu fpom...
here I am at peace...

'ampi hufwe-yä,
the wind's touch,
m<er>unge ay-mokri ay-pizayu-yä,
bringing the voices of the ancestors,

slä ke yol-a swaw lu,
but it's a short-lived moment,
swaw-ìl txìng oe-ti, na hufwe,
the moment leaves me, like the wind,
oe-yä krr z<ol>a'u,
My time has come,
Ulte oe zene hum,
And I must leave,

txing set
Leaving now
N<er>ew kä ne'ìmg,
Wanting to return,
Oe set txen lu,
I am now awake,

Oe-yä unil lu set tì-peng nì'aw,
My dream is now but a story,
Fì'unil z<ay>a'u ne'ìm srak?
Will my dream come back?
Oe rä'ä om<iv>um,
I do not know,

Oe h<er>ahaw set,
I am sleeping now,
N<er>ew unil s<iv>i nìmun...
Wanting to dream again...

Kerusey vrrtep:

Sounds very nice!
Now try translating it into Na'vi :D

I think it's a great poem, and I'm using it for my own Na'vi studies :)
I've continued with the translation, got this sofar:

fìtseng-ìri oe 'ì'awn mawey,
ke em Eywa-yä mawey-a tì-kame,
tì-mawey-ìl t<er>ìng oe-ti fpom,
mì tì-fnu a-swok na'rìng-ä,

Thought it'd be good to topic "here" since "here" is described in the rest of the verse. That's just my opinion, though :)

these types of stuff would be useful on google wave.
