I want a country
Let the sky be blue, the bough green, the cornfield golden;
Let it be a land of birds and flowers

I want a country
Let there be no pain in the head, no yearning in the hearth
Let there be an end to brothers’ quarrels

I want a country,
there be no rich no poor, no you no me;
On winter days let all have house and home.

I want a country
Let living like loving, come from the hearth;
And if there is complaint, let it be of death.

A poem from  Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı

BİR MEMLEKET İSTERİM

Memleket isterim
Gök mavi, dal yeşil, tarla sarı olsun;
Kuşların çiçeklerin diyarı olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne başta dert ne gönülde hasret olsun;
Kardeş kavgasına bir nihayet olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne zengin fakir ne sen ben farkı olsun;
Kış günü herkesin evi barkı olsun.

Memleket isterim
Yaşamak, sevmek gibi gönülden olsun;
Olursa bir şikayet ölümden olsun.
