Mixed Language

Updated : August 5, 2019

In our younger days, there were some aspiring Mixed Language Authors and Poets. A sample is provided.

If you want
the Du Wun Kye
I ta kei bin
sutt pay mei
Love hmar lar kwe
A chit ye

Loose rendition in English

If you want
the Northern Star
I really will
pluck it [from the sky for you]
Will you love me
My dearest

Editor’s Note :

U Zaw Min Nawaday (EP70) remembered reading the “probably most quoted” Mixed Language verse in an old Burmese magazine.

When I see a pyo ka-nya.
I will go to hto ney yar.
when I give her yee zar sar,
she will give me khon ba nat sar.

Probably someone’s real life episode.
