    Ahsank al khent pan Gullah?
    Do such crazy things happen (normally)?

    Hovhness Toumanian has written a lovely short poem about the erratic weather patterns of the month of May.

    Ays khent amsoun mard guhsen
    They call this crazy month May
    Hankeest chouneenk yeresen
    We are not comfortable for it
    Aysor ourakh, mehghum oreek
    Today a happy, mild day
    Vaghuh aghmouk pothorik
    Tomorrow thunder and a storm
    Ardounganough baidzar ot
    Early morning a bright clear day
    Jashou moot eh antzehervot
    By lunch it is dark and rainy
    Or muh eench tsourd, or muh dahk
    One day so cold, one day hot
    Hoss patts, eeshk hon ambi dak
    (The sky) open here, and there cloudy
    hoss guh khuntah, hohn gouh lah
    Here (the sky) laughs, and there it cries
    Ahsank ahl khent pan guhlah?
    Do such crazy things happen (normally)?
