The Sun Swing by Melih Cevdat Anday

The sun swing swings back and forth
While I arrange the clouds in my window.
Everything’s in the same place, stone of nothingness,
Zenith of the timeless sea, buried
Earth and a wind that goes nowhere.

As if time said it is because of the sun swing
Swinging back and forth.

translated by Sidney Wade & Efe Murad
