Before the Mountain Beyond the Mountain by Ferit Edgü

My belief amounts to nothing–theirs to quite something
Down the mountain come the deer–I look at the deer
They at the mountain

I believe in scarcely a single thing, if anything in mankind
They trust in nearly everything, but never humankind

They look at the mountain–while I look beyond it

The deer go down the mountainside
Beyond the mountain

translated by Jean Carpenter Efe
