Good News

It was birds who gave me the news, birds.
Something is about to happen.
The sun as we wish will rise,
We humans will be full of smiles.

At last, rivers will be in their beds,
Wolves in their dens, lambs on grasslands.
The world in peace and harmony,
All one, dreams and reality.

Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı (1910-1956). Müjde. Translated from the Turkish.
