Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı
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.
