Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır



Nazım Hikmet


Today is Sunday

Today is Sunday

For the first time they took me out into the sun today

And for the first time in my life I wasaghast

that the sky is so far away

                     and so blue

                     and so vast

         I stood there without a motion.

Then I sat on the ground in respectful devotion

learning against the white wall.

Who cares about the waves with which I yearn to roll

Or about strife of freedom or my wife right now.

I feel joyful and how.
