Translation of the poem:

The aroma of dung smoke billowed

I was born in a herder’s home

The wind, the great steppe

I consider it as my cradle

The blue fog rises

Gasing at the distant lands

My beautiful, vast country

When I look with admiration

The closing winds

Seems as if they were giving out kisses

Caresses, so lovingly like

My mother’s forgiving hands

When I feel the gracious compression

My heart is in awe

My vision blurs, with

Tears of unparalleled joy
