One verse of Txura Hufwe:

tsun piveng oeru, peut
alu fmawnit sengä a nga tul?
srak ngal zamunge
tìreymì oey tìlusatemit?

Very nice. I'd use tì-latem instead tì-l<us>atem. I'm not able to find correct English translation for tìlusatem, but at least in Czech it sounds very unusually, even strange.

I'd much rather use tìlatem as well.  It sounds nicer and fits better.  But is it an official word?  I couldn't find it in the dictionary...

No, it is not, but nor tìlusatem. So question is, if tì- prefix is productive or not. I'm not sure.

is productive when forming a gerund by the use of the infixes <us> (present) or <awn> (past) in a verb. :P

So it sounds awkward because I'm saying "a changing" instead of "a change", which we don't seem to have a word for. :-\

Maybe because it is a lyric, and because it appears evident what it should mean, I could get away with "making" a word? ???

What about:
srak ngal zamunge tìreymì oey mipa ayu(o)t? Meaning should be very similar
Oe lu skxawng skxakep. Slä oe nerume mi.

A couple of verses for Txura Hufwe:
(ignore the one above; I split it in two)

tsun piveng oer ma txura hufwe
peut - alu fmawnit sengä
a nga tul? - nìwotx newomum
oe kifkeyri a lìm fu sim

oer tìrey lu na hufwe atsuk-
latem - oe zene srivew
hu ayrìk - frakrr zera'u
ayu amip yamì astxong

Edit: Fixed.  Irayo ma mesmukan!

Great!
As you're addressing wind, I'd say: tsun piveng oeru, ma txura hufwe (if it fits into melody)
And newomum is intransitive, so oel would be shortened to oe
Oe lu skxawng skxakep. Slä oe nerume mi.

Tsuklatem should be used with attributive marker, I think.

The second half of Txura Hufwe, although verse order is by no means inflexible.

oel ke stawm nìno fralì'ut ta
hufwe - ayu tsun livìng
na fìwopx - slä zene oe
slivu nì'ul txantslusam mi

ke 'ì'awn kawkrr txura hufwe
swawo - fì'u rikx fteke
tiverkup - nìtengfya fa
tìrey ayoeng tsawl sleru li

 :D :) :D
