Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

Morning Song

Listen!

The morning has three doors in the sky.

One of them is hope.

Take it and give it to the child

Let him grow with it

Let him grow tall and walk tall.

 

Listen, listen!

The morning has three doors in the sky.

One of them is the daily berad

shining in your hands.

Let it shine on and increase

all the bright way long.

 

Listen, I say, listen!

The morning has three doors to the sky.

One of them is fear.

Silence it!

The bread is yours, the hope is yours.

What can fear do

when hends can speak unto other hands?
