The sun awakens 

The earth from her sleep, all the

Nature be glad; smile.


When the sun sets, night

Comes but then the moon, the stars

Peep and glut natures.

The earth has been suffering from the disease called war for ages,

The earth gazes at the mankind with helplessness,

She is crying with agony,

She prays to Almighty

To recover and forgiving her sons

 To transform into ideal animals, Ideal humans;

She prays to the Creator to scatter

The perfume of harmony among humans’ geography;

She prays to the Merciful Master of the universe

 For showering of peace in the country

 Of human mind;

She prays to the Savior to protect her from war

And to sow the seeds of swear

In the fields of gene and the minds of humankind

Not to fight.

I sat by a stream under a starry heaven,

The night’s eye found her face in the mirror of water,

I looked up and down again and again,

She smiled and all were being overwhelmed by her splendor;

The stream was laughing and dancing,

The breeze was singing,

And drawing fondling on our bodies and minds;

The whole valley bathed with the fountain of moonlight,

And wore the dress of delight.

Thoughts of romanticism were flying with wings

In the sky of my mind.

If my beloved were in this beautiful moment with me

How much better it would be!

Then thoughts of cosmos were flying with wings

In the sky of my mind.

How large the cosmos!

How many planets and stars!

And the thought-birds mind me the Almighty

And I said, how great the Creator!
