today is sunday - a poem by nazim hikmet

today is sunday.
for the first time they took me out into the sun today.
and for the first time in my life i was aghast
that the sky is so far away
and so blue
and so vast
i stood there without a motion.
then i sat on the ground with respectful devotion
leaning against the white wall.
who cares about the waves with which i yearn to roll
or about strife or freedom or my wife right now.
the soil, the sun and me...
i feel joyful and how.
