Eternity: An Angosian Poem

Many years ago I created a language called Angosey.  I still use Angosey in my diary, and occasionally I am moved to revisit some old texts of mine, to give them a new spin or just brush off the rust.

I thought I’d share one of my old Angosey poems with you tonight.  It’s not much in English, but then again, they say that it is only perfect in your mind, and Angosey is currently used nowhere else.

 

Eternity

How does heaven compare with the fires of the heat?

Ashes lie in a shattered land.

I pause for a moment

Then I descend

And eternity echoes in my footsteps.

 

Here it is in Angosey (don’t bother with pronunciation now, I’ll post on that later)

Sa Elena

La insenethaya angay al zanathya aleth?

Ayleya au zanakhya in talna amahaltha.

Halamaya isha vathna sia

Es graya isha

Kou sarakhnaya elena ay sharathya eme.

About glossarch

The word "glossarch" doesn't exist. At least, not yet. But let's pretend it does for a second. The first part is "gloss," a word that comes to us from Ancient Greek via Latin and English. It means "language." The second part also comes from Ancient Greek and can mean "having power over." So "glossarch" means simply "language controller." So what am I doing making up words? Well, I made up an entire language once. It's called Angosey. So I'm the Glossarch of Angosey. I'm currently a doctorate student in volcano seismology (a branch of geophysics). I enjoy writing fiction and poetry, launching balloons, programming, and hanging out with my lovely wife! Follow me on Twitter!
