Yunus Emre

(1238-1320 / Turkey)

Bir Dürr-i Yetimem Ki


Bir dürr-i yetîmem ki görmedi beni umman,
Bir katreyem illâ ki ummâna benim umman.

Gel mevc-i acâyib gör, deryâyı nihan gözle,
Zî bahr-i nihâyet katrede olur pinhan.

Okuyamadı mevzun Leylî adını Mecnun,
Hem Leyli idim anda, hem Mecnun idim hayran

Bu âlem-i kesrette sen Yûsuf-u ben Yakub,
O alem-i vahdette ne Yûsuf u ne Kenan.

Dem vurmaz idi Mansur tevhid-i Enel Hak’tan,
Aşk dârına dost zülfü asmıştı beni üryan.

Adım Yunus olduğu bû cisim belâsıdır,
Âdım sorar olursan sultâna benim sultan.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
