Stand For Teacher

Stand for the teacher and honor his rank...
...for a teacher is almost as a prophet
Do you know of someone nobler than...
...he who nurtures minds and hearts
You encompass all, the Best Teacher...
...You taught with the pen the earliest people
You brought this mind forth from darkness...
...and guided it to an enlightened, radiant path
For if the teacher is not just, then lost...
...is the spirit of justice in youth for certain
If the teacher's insight lapses for a moment...
...then those under his tutelage will lack vision
If guidance and counsel are based ...

A Sail On Tigris River

.A sail on Tigris River expands going forth in front of me
.My tears pray imploring not to viscous event attacks thee
.Glide on the water surface as floatable thing slowly
.Cross the water as the gleam guider that passes gently
.Come in to touch the land as if a heaven it looks eternally
.Maybe it looks as a smart paradise on smiling valley
.Stop to look closely and insure my heart to be safety
.Then I am saved from the gazing of black eyes jealousy
.To be from wine and drinking companio

[Hata Bildir]
