Poem 1In this poem and the following one the rhyme of the first hemistich is -ūgih, or -ōgih (because ‘as a result of the monophthongization of diphthongs, ū and ō can serve interchangeably as ridj, as can ī and ē,’ S.A. Sowayan (1985), 162). When the end of the rhyme is not the 3 m. s. pronominal suffix, but the feminine ending of the noun, I have brought out the distinction by transcribing it as -ah, not -ih. The distinction corresponds to a similar, albeit very slight, difference in Dindān’s pronunciation.
