Song of Children Lost

Lost in the silent groves of his beard
we pray to the god of this forest:
how is it fair that we wander alone
our sleeves tucked into this cold?
So far we've come, stones and bread-crumbs
look alike. The path behind
fills up with stinging nettles; our voices
grow cracked with crying. If a witch
should find us now, we know

[Hata Bildir]
