It Is Snowing In Darkness I - Poem by Metin Sahin

neither a voice from far.far away
aloof
neither settling the lines of a poem
to make the obscure more obscure
neither to embroider the rhyme
with the skillfulness of a jeweller
nor a beautıful word
nor a deep salute, deep greeting
thanks god
I am over and over
at the summıt of evrything
may be a tower tonight
Tonight
I am a plain street singer
with a novice..clumsy voice
whihch sings a song
you can never hear
ıt is snowing in darkness
you stand in front pf the MADRID GATE
aqainst you is an army
killing
our hopes
our longings
our freedom
and our children
and it is snowing
it is shivering
it is cold
you stay bold
and may be tonight
your wet feet are shivering
and now
at this time at night
a bullet may strıke you
and might be embedded
somewhere in your body
then
there never be
nor snow
nor wind
nor night
nor darkness
for you
