TU ALƮIA, FṚM PRIZN

Rić̣d Luvlês

Ẃn luv wɖ uncnfînid wñz
Hovrz wɖn mî gets,

T ẃispr at ɖ greits;
Ẃn I lî tangld in hr her
N fetrd t hr î,
Ɖ brdz ɖt wontn in ɖ er
Nǒ no sć liḅti.

Ẃn flowñ cups run swiftli rnd,
Wɖ no aleyñ Tmz,
Ǎr cerlis hedz wɖ rozz bǎnd,
Ǎr harts wɖ loyl flemz;
Ẃn ʈrsti grīf in wîn w stīp,
Ẃn hlʈs n dráfts g fri,
Fiśz ɖt tipl in ɖ dīp

Ẃn lîc cmitd linits I
Wɖ śrilr ʈrot śl sñ

Inlarjid windz, ɖt crl ɖ flud,

Ston wōlz d nt a prizn mc,
Nr ayn barz a cej:
Mîndz iṇsnt n qayt tec

F I hv frīdm in mî luv,
N in mî soul am fri,
Enjlz alon, ɖt sōr abv,
Injô sć liḅti.
