Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

Fragments From “Hungarian Dairy”

She knew neither English nor German

She had shining long dark hair,

And bright eyes

 

If she smiled, the sun would rise

Someone would hold her hand

And caress her hair

-all children speak the same language

Should I have told a fairy tale

Or…

I don’t know what to do

 

“My mother is a fish” she was saying

(Translated by Mevlut Ceylan, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
