oo, cool idea. yes, let's do that.

[ linguistic notes:

1. I'm guessing at the word for "orange". "majan" means "dawn".

2. "narafel" interestingly means "flower of creation", but it's in the
lexicon. (I think it's short for something like nara-marn-fel, "flower of
creation of sleep", but it's also possible that poppies figure more in the
creation legend than I'd realised.) ]
