We thank you Eywa ~ Ayoengal irayo si Eywa
For the simple joys  of this drink ~ Ftue prrte' te fi'u naer
We drink it in an enjoyable manner ~ Aoel tìväng nì'o
We drink it in an honorable manner ~Aoel tìväng meuianga nìfya'o
We thank you Eywa ~ Ayoengal irayo si Eywa

This is, of course, the ceremonial aspect of the Kava Ceremony

Very nice attempt, ma Ateyo :), I like it. But you used some incorrect words: tìväng is "thirst", while "to drink" is näk - check with dictionary (no shame to use it :D)

I rewrote this minipoem in this way:

Ayoe irayo si, ma Eywa
furia tsun niväk fìnaerit nìprrte'
Ayoel näk tsat nì'o'
Ayoel näk tsat nìfya'o ameuianga'
Ayoe irayo si, ma Eywa

We thank you, Eywa
that we can drink this potion with pleasure
We drink it enjoyably
We drink it in an honorable manner
We thank you, Eywa
