Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Necati Cumalı

(1921- ..)

Night

The night-bird settles,

under her wings

the stepe darkens from end to end.

 

Now and then she pecks at the mountains.

Under her belly she hears

The arteries of the earth.

When she looks up

The stars in her eyes dissolve

And flow into darkness.
