I Love (1979)
by Bakhtiyar Vahabzade (born 1925)
Overcast weather I love;
It shall give birth to the sun,
The sun for sure!
Harsh winter I love;
It shall give birth to hot summer,
Hot summer for sure!
Hatred's climax I love;
It shall give birth to love,
Love for sure!
Tyranny's pain I love;
It shall give birth to justice,
Justice for sure!
From "Bakhtiyar Vahabzade. Poems, Short Stories and a Play", edited by Hadi Sultan-Qurraie, and translated by Talat Sait Halman. Indiana University Turkish Studies Publications: Bloomington, Indiana, 1998.
