STOP WAYFARER !

Stop wayfarer! Unbeknownst to you this ground
You come and tread on, is where an epoch lies;
Bend down and lend your ear, for this silent mound
Is the place where the heart of a nation sighs.

To the left of this deserted shadeless lane
The Anatolian slope now observe you well;
For liberty and honour, it is, in pain,
Where wounded Mehmet laid down his life and fell.

This very mound, when violently shook the land,
When the last bit of earth passed from hand to hand,
And when Mehmet drowned the enemy in flood,
Is the spot where he added his own pure blood.

Think, the consecrated blood and flesh and bone
That make up this mound, is where a whole nation,
After a harsh and pitiless war, alone
Tasted the joy of freedom with elation.

by Necmettin Halil Onan

Dur yolcu! Bilmeden gelip bastığın,
Bu toprak, bir devrin battığı yerdir.
Eğil de kulak ver bu sessiz yığın
Bir vatan kalbinin attığı yerdir.

Bu ıssız, gölgesiz yolun sonunda,
Gördüğün bu tümsek, Anadolu’nda
İstiklal uğruna, namus yolunda,
Can veren Mehmet’in yattığı yerdir.

Bu tümsek, koparken büyük zelzele
Son vatan parçası geçerken ele
Mehmet’in düşmanı boğduğu sele
Mübarek kanını kattığı yerdir.

DüşÃ¼n ki haşrolan kan, kemik, etin
Yaptığı bu tümsek amansız çetin
Bir harbin sonunda bütün milletin
Hürriyet zevkini tattığı yerdir

Necmettin Halil Onan
