Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar                               

(1901-1962)

The Black Horses                                                               

One day

The cold wind of night in your hair

You’ll close down these horizons

Silent and weary you’ll wait in your corner

For the black horses of your final journey.

 

And slowly you’ll say to yourself,

I’m freed once again from the circle of life.
