Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Can Yücel

(1926-1999)

Freedom For the Sparrows

Sparrows, I zaid,

enough is enough

I’ll slam the door shut.

 

They took no notice,

so I didn’t slam the door

so let them get on with it.

(Translated by Feyyaz Kayacan Fergar, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
