Zakoni narave / The Laws of Nature

Communist poet and writer Nâzım Hikmet Ran’s poem “Üç Selvi” is about three cypress trees. In his metaphoric narrative, at first, trees live in harmony with nature. After their destruction, the joy of life is gone and the world is deprived of the sound of cypress leaves.

Shergar
