Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır



Kemalettin Kamu


Frontiers Waters

Does anyone cry halt, or bar the way?

Whose are these waters, whose these men in arms?


By the banks of the Maritza

My horse bent its head;

A rifle-shot, the Bulgar,

The Grek, ten steps ahead.


Stop, my horse, like a query!

Bend your head to the stream,

Look at the yellow Tunja,

Of the great Danube, dream!

(Translated by Bernard Lewis, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
