Hey folks,

I can't make head or tail of this poem:


Ine iutie Ipsliche-Ischterepe
E Irtnerpe, ine-iderte irle
Es Ifible u ine Igule Ileche
Es Iggepe-Iue-imbe, iwe irnge iberse irwe

E immligsche ienegre Iggste Indiske-Ickerze
E ichle, ierve itterigble u irve-irretde
E Iguhe u ine Ipechle iuve Idlegre
E Isule iwe icherse iemerne ime ietze

Inife u ine Ielene
Ise Illiebe irfe ife ds Intscherme
E Ipele u ine Ireschne-Igege
U ds ingerschte ine ine Igere-Irmuwe

Iswe inesse Ieutschige -ise ische ischfe ise Inderwe-
Idne iuse itme ichse imee-iittre
E Ickse iuve Ibugre, Ickdre u Inderple ?
E Ickse iuve Ielege- Iligse-itke !


At least, I think it's a poem because of the apparent stanzas. Some syllables almost remind me of certain German dialects, but I'm extraordinarily confused by the fact that most of the words begin with the letter "i."

Is there anyone out there who can solve this mystery?
