Vulcan Love Song

A poem supposedly translated from an old Vulcan language.

This poem is dated approximately 500 Terran years before the Reforms, or circa 300 B.C. The translation endeavours to reproduce the traditional Vulcan stanza with its pairs of eight-syllable lines; the characteristic pattern of assonance is not attempted.

It is not precisely a ni var, but I suspect that it was inspired by the idea.

First Line

The dawn came on me silently, / like an early raid from ambush.
