A Sunday Poem

with one comment

This week, a poem by Fikrat Goja (Fikrət Qoca) called An Unfinished Work (Yarımçıq İş):

An Unfinished Work

An unfinished work is
An engaged son or daughter
Without a wedding.
An unfinished work is
An autumn without harvest.
An unfinished work is
A road without a bridge,
A land without a road,
A tongue without a word.
An unfinished work is
A work done without a goal,
A curse without meaning,
A kiss without love.
An unfinished work is
A roof with a ceiling
That leaks,
Brother, in short,
An unfinished work is
A person who is good for nothing.

For the Azerbaijani version, read below…

Yarımçıq İş

Yarımçıq iş
Nişanlı qalan oğuldu, qızdı.
Yarımçıq iş
Barsız gələn payızdı.
Yarımçıq iş
Körpüsü tikilməyən yoldu.
Yolu olmayan eldi.
Sözü olmayan dildi.
Yarımçıq iş
Məqsədsiz işdi,
Mətləbsiz söyüşdü,
Məhəbbətsiz öpüşdü.
Yarımçıq iş
Tavansız damdı.
Göydən düşən
Evinə damdı.
Qardaş, xülasə
Yarımçıq iş
Yarımçıq adamdı.
