Homeland Is Everythıng


A tree is never too old
To provide shade
Home is a mighty tree
Under whose shade we strive

Homeland is the nest we must return to
When the crowd becomes unfriendly
And the cloud stormy
My heart beat for home

Home is where the squirrel
Knows every farmer and the owl,
Every hunter. Home is where respect
Is earn and labour has dignity

Home is the heart of the people
Where trust is not rust and truth untold
Home is where the heart lays
Homeland is brotherhood

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
