Exercise  31: Reading a Poem




Lao Map

ປະເທດຂ້ອຍ                       ເອີ້ນຊື່ເມືອງລາວ

ລວງກວ້າງຍາວ                    ສຸດຕາເຫຼືອອ່ານ

ນ້ຳຂອງຜ່ານ                       ໄຫຼລ່ວງລົງຄອນ

ເຮົາຊະອອນ                       ຫົນທາງສະອາດ

ປະເທດຊາດ                       ກວ້າງໃຫຍ່ໄພສານ

ເຮົາລູກຫຼານ                     ເກີດມາພາຍຊ້ອຍ

ພາກັນຊ່ວຍ                      ສ້າງບ້ານເມືອງລາວ

ໃຫ້ຍືນຍາວ                        ຈະເລີນກ້າວຫນ້າ

ບໍ່ໃຫ້ຫຼ້າ                            ຫຼັງບ້ານອື່ນເຂົາ   ແທ້ແລ້ວ
