Stop wayfarer ! Unbeknownst to you this ground
You come and tread on, is where an epoch lies;
Bend down and lend your ear, for this silent mound
Is the place where the heart of a nation sighs.

From the poem “to a traveller” by Necettin Halil Onan
transcribed from the Turkish yearbook of Gallipoli Studies, (Çanakkale 2003), p.1
(translated by S. Tanvir Wasti)
