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 Sýtký Tarancý

BÝR MEMLEKET ÝSTERÝM

Memleket isterim
Gök mavi, dal yeþil, tarla sarý olsun;
Kuþlarýn çiçeklerin diyarý olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne baþta dert ne gönülde hasret olsun;
Kardeþ kavgasýna bir nihayet olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne zengin fakir ne sen ben farký olsun;
Kýþ günü herkesin evi barký olsun.

Memleket isterim
Yaþamak, sevmek gibi gönülden olsun;
Olursa bir þikayet ölümden olsun.
