The foaming sea

The surface of the sea turns foam,
a boat could take me on the sea.
I have come upon this earth
because of human beauty.

The sea is all made up of sails.

Death has found us quickly.
A candle burns in a plate
in the middle of the sea.

My darling, I will leave this earth
out of love for my country.


Deniz Üstü Köpürür
