Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır



Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı


The Train

Where to at this time of night

Beautiful train, solitary train?

Bitter was the sound of your whistle

Bringing so many things to mind.

Why should I not wave my handkerchief

All your pasengers are more or less close to me.

Go, then, I wish you a safe journey,

I wish you strong bridges and bright tunnels.
