Re: be'joy'

lab Quvar:

:I'm helping someone to translate a song.
:It's about a beautiful alien woman seducing
:the crew of a Klingon ship.


:He called this temptress a "devil-like seducer",
:a *be'veqlargh*. That's not canon, but I think for poetry
:it's okay enough.

chaq bomvetlhvaD QaplaH mu' "be'veqlargh" 'ach vIpar jIH.
qatlh? moHqu'mo' pagh tlhu'moHlaH veqlargh 'e' vIHar. ghe''or lojmIt 'av
veqlargh, nuv tlhu'moHbe'.

:Any better suggestions?

tlhu'moHwI' = temptress
'IHwI' = beauty
'IHwI' mIgh = evil beauty
qa' jonwI' = the capturer of souls

qaq qechmeywIj 'e' vImaqbe'.

:Besides of that he would like to know other
:expressions or metaphors he could use in that song.
:I don't know anything special.

Anyone interested in Klingon metaphors might consider reading
