THE FROGS
The following child's play rhyme in Baluba with its translation was contributed by Mrs. L. G. Shep-pard, who wTas for many years a missionary in Congo, Africa.
Cula, Cula, Kuya kudi Kunyi? Tuyiya ku cisila wa Baluba. Tun kuata tua kuesa cinyi? Tua kudimuka kua musode.
Translation
Frogs, frogs, where are you going? We are going to the market of the Baluba. If they catch you, what will they do? They will turn us all into lizards.
