Exercise  30: Reading a Poem




ໃນດ່ານດິນແດນພື້ນ             ນະຄອນສີສະຕະນາກ

ຍິນສະໜຸກມ່ວນແມ້ງ            ຄົນເຕົ້າອັ່ງໂຮມ

ພໍເມື່ອໝົດເຂດຟ້າ               ເດືອນດ່ວນລະດູຝົນ

ເດືອນສິບສອງເພັງພໍ            ໜ່ວຍພະຈັນໃສແຈ້ງ

ຝູງສ່ຳຊົນໄປໄຫວ້                ເຈດີພະທາດໃຫຍ່

ຈູດໝູ່ທຽນທູບໄຕ້            ບູຊາໄຫວ້ໜໍ່ພຸດໂທ  ແທ້ແລ້ວ
