Jewels of the Poor

There is blackness in the sky
Intersected by distant flames
How famous now are burning clouds
That exhale life and breathe again

I think it fine, the dark night sky
So old, its gleaning beams pass by
To cast a line of fate once more
Upon this farmer’s earthly shore

[Hata Bildir]
