Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Yunus Emre

(1321- ….)

I am not at this place to dwell,

I arrived here just depart.

I’m a well-stocked peddler, I sell

To all those who’ll buy from my mart.

 

I am not here earth for strife,

Love is tne mission of my life.

Hearts are the home of the loved one;

I came here to build each true heart.

 

My madness is love for the Frined.

Lovers know what my hopes portend:

Form e duality must end:

God and I must not live apart.

(Translated by Talat Sait Hamlan, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
