The valleys and hills heaved and trembled,
The stone over my grave was rolled aside,
I cleared the worms from my eyes and my mouth,
Was this Resurrection, as prophesied?

I felt my body rising upward,
The flesh on my bones was reappearing,
All around me the dead were rising now,
What gasps of confusion I was hearing!

[Hata Bildir]
