Our Poetry, Our Life

Tap, tap, tap beats the drummer,
Accompanied by the town crier,
His little gong calling the villagers,
Little children begin to gather themselves,
pairing in twos, their little feet, ready to move,
The mothers leave her chores and call to one another saying,
Come, dance to our favouite tune,
The hungry babies, weak from tears,
Hurriedly forget their distress as they shook their heads to the beat,

[Hata Bildir]
