General NotesEdit

This ode to Ḱægx́a (Old Ktarh: /cɜɣxɑ/), or better known as Hǣhha, is a standard Ktarh ode, with the exception of it being written in dodecasyllabic verse as opposed to a dodecametre. Ḱægx́a was a tribal warlord that succeeded in uniting the western Ktarh tribes and thus established the first Ktarh nation.

Praised be, hero! You father of fathers!
Daughter of authority! Son of the skies!
Yet, "sinner!" shout the clouds -
"Your own words sting but do not sound."
