The English version of the above poem is given below:

THE TRUE TANI
Mg.Polo Bomi
In the mountains, on the land of plains
Up above in the heaven, deep inside the earth surface
Everywhere live the True Tani
While he works, while he tell tales
While he climb over the mountains
While hymns are sang
He lives longer

He sees with his own eyes, speak with thine mouth
Works with own hands, stands up on his own leg
The True Tani

The dream he sees the work he does
The struggle he leads
It’s for the Tanis
His ideals and ideas will live longer
He’ll see his own shadow forever
No corpse of his lie anywhere
