I really need the translation of this famous poem, if someone can help, it would be great

 

Utansın / Necip Fazıl Kısakürek

Tohum saç, bitmezse toprak utansın! 
Hedefe varmayan mızrak utansın! 

Hey gidi küheylan, koşmana bak sen! 
Çatlarsan, doğuran kısrak utansın! 

Eski çınar şimdi noel ağacı; 
Dallarda iğreti yaprak utansın! 

Ustada kalırsa bu öksüz yapı, 
Onu sürdürmeyen çırak utansın! 

Ölümden ilerde varış dediğin, 
Geride ne varsa bırak utansın! 

Ey binbir tanede solmayan tek renk; 
Bayraklaşamıyorsan bayrak utansın!

Ölümden ilerde varış dediğin, 
Geride ne varsa bırak utansın! 

Ey binbir tanede solmayan tek renk; 
Bayraklaşamıyorsan bayrak utansın!

Utansın / Necip Fazıl Kısakürek

Tohum saç, bitmezse toprak utansın! 
Hedefe varmayan mızrak utansın! 

Scatter seeds, if they dont grow, let the soil be ashamed

Let the spear which doesnt reach to its target be ashamed.

Hey gidi küheylan, koşmana bak sen! 
Çatlarsan, doğuran kısrak utansın! 

O Arabian horse, you just concentrate on your running

If you exhaust, let the mare gave you birth be ashamed.

Eski çınar şimdi noel ağacı; 
Dallarda iğreti yaprak utansın! 

Old plane tree is now a noel tree

Let the leafs which already dont look good on the branches be ashamed

Ustada kalırsa bu öksüz yapı, 
Onu sürdürmeyen çırak utansın! 

If this unfinished structure stops where the master left it

Let the apprentice who doesnt go on be ashamed

Ölümden ilerde varış dediğin, 
Geride ne varsa bırak utansın! 

What you called arrival is ahead of death

Let what remains back be ashamed

Ey binbir tanede solmayan tek renk; 
Bayraklaşamıyorsan bayrak utansın!

O the only color that doesnt fade among a thousand and one colors

If you cant be a flag, let the flag be ashamed

xxxx I dont know that he means with tane here.

 

Could it be

 

Ey binbir tanede solmayan tek renk;

Oh the only color that does not fade among a thousand and one colors     ?

 

tane is a pronoun here and its correlate is renk. But the correlate is to the right of it which makes it look strange.

 

I may be wrong of course.
