our paper is rag, our shroud, cloud, our profession, hope, greetings to those who broke it. (see: ulku tamer) (see: the evening when your rose faded)
"One day he will climb the mountain, draw poetry from the stars, wipe our blood, wash it in the purest water" (see: lament)
It is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read. The second part of this poem is one of the most beautiful compliments I have ever seen; after love... the sleep that follows love does not make love, but completes you, the country of your face knows no bounds, leaves the night without borders, that thin sadness hits all its history on its back, you are like a festivity on the branch where the sparrow, which crosses the sea in three days, perches panting in the morning
Cemal Süreya has a statement about his poetry: "Most of his short poems are like carnival tickets, full of joy. His long poems almost always work with tragic elements."
... don't send me flowers, send me a bird tree
"Letterless coma, teach me what the years have taught you, send the shadow of your fingers."
He is a great poet whose name is rarely mentioned and whose books are very difficult to find because he has not passed away from us yet. *
