    A very big place was reserved for giraffes in the zoo which was in Gülhane Park. There lived a mother and a father giraffe with their two children. They were walking with a swaying movement all day long and the visitors were watching them. The mother and the father giraffes had been living in that place for a very long time so that they got used to living there and they didn't complain about it, but their children were bored and they always asked their father: ' How long are we going to live here? When are you going to take us to the places that you have told us in the fairy tales?'.

    One day one of his children asked him, 'Daddy, how did we come here? Who took us here?'.

    Then the father giraffe decided to tell his children the story of their grandfather who lived very far away from there so that they could be able to understand how they ended up in that place.

    And he started:

    'All the giraffes are very tall and have long necks but your grandfather was very short when he was born. As the years passed away he become older but he could not get taller and as he got older the desire to be a star in a circus grew more and more in his heart. He did not want to live in that place, and being an ordinary giraffe was not proper for him. So he started to organize shows in the wood where he lived to achieve his goal. All the animals living in that wood were interested in his shows and watched his imitations of different animals happily.

    One day hunters came to that wood. They were there to catch some animals and take them to a zoo. While they were watching around with their binoculars on a hill, they saw the squad giraffe making his show. When they saw his admirable acting and excellent show they thought that he was a marvellous juggler so they decided to catch him. After the show they started to follow him secretly. The squad giraffe was not surprised because he knew that to be successful there were some difficulties that he had to struggle with. He thought in details about what he should do to dispose of those hunters in and made a very brilliant plan.

    He knew that if he did something without planning it he would have some difficulties and would be caught by the hunters easily. It was impossible to understand what the hunters' intention was and how they were planning to catch him.

    The next day the hunters pinched him near a reed bed. While the hunters were moving ahead they were so happy because they were sure of catching him as there was nowhere for him to run away. When they found out that he disappeared, they could not believe their eyes. They realized that the footprints of the squad giraffe disappeared near the reed bed. In fact this was a part of the giraffe's plan. He escaped from there by getting on a trunk of a tree which he had hidden there the day before. The following day he could hear the hunters saying that if he was caught, he was going to be taken to a zoo. After hearing this conversation he became so happy that he appeared jigging up and down on his four feet. Then he howled like a wolf and roared like a lion. The hunters were shocked when they saw him doing such things and behaving like a fool. After that the squad giraffe started doing all the tricks that he knew one after another and finished his show. The hunters liked his show very much so that they applauded him.

    When he was taken to the zoo, he started living here where we live now. But he continued making his shows in his new home. In the meantime my mother and he fell in love. After a time I was born. When I was a little giraffe I remember that a lot of people were coming here to see him and to watch his shows. He was making his shows all day long without getting tired. By the way an international circus used to come here on certain dates of each year. Once while the circus was being established here the owner of it started walking around the zoo. When he saw the crowd he what was happening there so he smuggled into the crowd. After watching the squad giraffe making his show he understood that he was very talented and could become a world-famous star so he gave him lots of money to transfer him to his circus. The squad giraffe put this opportunity into good use and after a few rehearsals he appeared on the stage. He was so successful that the number of people who came to the circus increased suddenly.

    The circus used to stay for ten days wherever it was established and there used to be only one show during the day. After the small giraffe started working there this changed and four or five shows a day were being made and that year the circus stayed in the zoo for a month.

    The next year when the circus came here my father visited us. He was here to see my mother and me and his friends. We were very happy.

    We were together for about two hours. He told us that he had been to a lot of countries making shows and attracted attention of everybody. He wanted to become a star in a circus and he did his best for this and finally he achieved his goal. He was so happy. Did you understand how we came here to this place?'
    'Yes, daddy we did. We got it very well', the children replied all together and they looked at each other smiling.

    There is an undeniable truth that there is nothing which can not be done if you want to do it so much. Nothing or nobody can stop you. You might have some dreams of your own or you would like to be as successful as somebody you admire there is nothing to stop you so you should go for it. The little giraffes followed their grandfather's footsteps and became very successful circus stars. If you look at the sky very carefully at night you can see them blinking you.

    The lion, king of woods, didn’t have a son to continue his family and kingdom so that he was very unhappy. If he had a son, his son would grow up in a few years time and walk around in the woods throwing his mane into the air. When he roared to keep the security of the woods all the criminals or the ones who were getting ready to commit a crime would look for a place to hide as they got frightened of his voice and his power. Why didn’t he have a son to leave his crown and kingdom? He didn’t even have a single relative or a child of a relative to whom he might teach how to be a king or manage the woods and who can be the king after he get older. The king must be noble and aristocrat. It wasn’t easy to be a king. Anybody who wants to be a king couldn’t manage the woods. He should have noble descendants. If the king made an ordinary lion the king there would be some problems because that lion might be unable to manage all the animals that lived in his kingdom which might cause a chaos and a rebellion would break up and this might result in death of lots of animals.

    The king of the woods thought that he should leave his kingdom and his crown to a lion which was from his family otherwise he would not be relaxed. So that he decided to check out his family tree once more much more carefully. He agreed on controlling every detail about his father, his grandfather and his other relatives in details. I must find a lion that is noble.

    He made lots of researches for a very long time and as a result he found out some new information about his family. Four generations ago when the king left his kingdom to his elder son the younger one got really upset and that he abandoned the kingdom. While searching for some information about his family he learned that this lion started to live in a very far away wood which was called Grandr. He started a new life which was very simple there. He couldn’t find any other information about what had happened to that lion afterwards. The king invited the fox to his palace and told him about all those things. Then the king wanted the fox to make an investigation if he could find any of his relatives
    in that woods and also he ordered him to bring the youngest and talented one with him to the king’s palace. The fox wasn’t going to tell anyone about his journey to any other animals otherwise it was going to be killed.

    When the fox reached the Grandr woods he saw a small group of people who were listening to a small lion playing the guitar. The fox was really surprised because he had never seen a lion playing the guitar before. And the lion was playing it very well. He wanted to see the lion’s performance and listen to him from a nearer place so that he walked along through the crowds and took a seat at the first row. Now he could hear the sound of the guitar much better. He listened to the lion playing his guitar for a while and as a result he thought that it was such a talented lion. He wanted to listen to the lion’s concert till the morning but it was impossible because when it got dark the lion ended his concert and thanked to those who were listening to his concert. The fox was really impressed and it was the best performance he had ever seen and listened to.

    The next day the fox started his investigation to find out something about what had happened to the youngest son of the king that had left his homeland many years ago. He talked to each of the animals and asked them if they knew anything about that lion and what might have happened to him, if he had any sons or if he died alone without having a family and children of his own but he couldn’t find the answers of these questions because none of the animals that he talked to didn’t gave him a clear explanation. They all told him that they didn’t know anything about that lion and his story.

    The fox’s investigation took ten days and in the end a very old lion confessed that he knew something about the lion that he was trying to get some information about. There was only one lion that survived and all the others had died and that was the lion playing the guitar when he first arrived in those woods. It wasn’t very difficult to find that lion for the fox. He was again giving a concert at the same place. When the concert ended the fox went beside the lion and told him that he was sent there by the king of the woods and that the king had heard about that talented lion so that invited him to give a concert in his palace. The lion accepted the king’s invitation and set off his journey with the fox to go to the palace.

    When they arrived at the palace the fox firstly showed the lion his room and then went to talk to the king about what had happened in details. Fortunately a lion that was noble and coming from the royal family had been found. What is more it was really talented. But his being able to play the guitar surprised the kind and he also thought that it was very strange for a lion to play the guitar.

    After having dinner in the dining room of the palace the lion started his concert. All the animals that were listening to his concert in the palace were fascinated. Everybody thought that he had supernatural powers as if a magical hand was playing the guitar and sometimes the lion was also singing while playing his guitar and that was really unbelievable.

    Day after day as the king got to know the lion he started to love him much more. He was noble, honoured, well informed besides he was respectful and cultured. Moreover he was the king’s cousin. What else would be expected from a lion that was going to be the king? The king decided to leave his kingdom to this lion. But the king couldn’t find a way to explain this situation to him. It was very difficult for the king to do this. The days were passing by but the king couldn’t talk to the lion about his intention. Fortunately he could find the courage at himself to talk to the lion all about. And he told him every detail.

    ‘Here is the family tree and these are the names or our grandparents that were the kings before. When my grandfather was requested as a king after his father, your grandfather left the palace and moved to Grandr woods. And you are the only one who survives of his descendants. I mean you are my cousin and you are the only one who will be the king after I die’.

    The lion wasn’t surprised when he heard what the king had told him. He had listened to those stories from his father many times. He told the king that he had known everything. The king congratulated the lion because of his honesty. He might have pretended as if he didn’t know anything but he didn’t do so. As a result the king was so honoured because of having a cousin like him and he was very pleased that he could find the right lion to leave his kingdom.

    Apples, pears from the tree falls
    They sleep under the arbor .

Akşam yemeğine komşusuyla beraber gitmişler. Sofrada yok yokmuş. Etli yemekler, kavurmalar, tatlılar, pilavlar, hoşaflar çeşit çeşitmiş. Keloğlan şimdiye kadar böyle bir sofra görmemiş.

Then come to their house were sitting under the pergola . Come to dinner was noon , the evening was come to dinner , and then lay down to sleep , it took several months have such a uniform way . Keloğlan gained weight by day , was a fat boy . Keloğlan forgotten the name . The villagers have started calling him Şişmanoğlan.

    Keloğlan o gece sabaha kadar uyumuş. Sabah kahvaltısına yine komşusuyla beraber gitmişler. Ballı-börekli, pastalı-çörekli kahvaltı yapmışlar. Sonra evlerine gelip çardak altında oturmuşlar. Öğlen oldu haydi yemeğe, akşam oldu haydi yemeğe, sonra yatıp uyumaya, bu böyle tekdüze şekilde aylarca sürmüş. Keloğlan gün geçtikçe kilo almış, şişman bir oğlan olmuş. Keloğlan adı unutulmuş. Köydekiler kendisini Şişmanoğlan diye çağırmaya başlamışlar.

    Dream within a dream one night in the house was asleep . Where all kinds of food and drink while eating a big meal itself was seeing . Eaten , drunk eaten , drunk ijtima the swollen , swells the swollen , she had burst at the end of boom and spread to places . Keloğlan associated with this condition have pity . In a move that quickly turned into Şişmanoğlan very hard . Frowning :

    Bir gece evinde uyurken rüya içinde rüya görmüş. Her çeşit yiyecek ve içeceğin bulunduğu büyük bir sofrada kendisini yemek yerken görüyormuş. Yemiş içmiş, yemiş içmiş, içtikçe şişmiş, şiştikçe şişmiş, sonunda boom diye patlamış ve yerlere yayılmış. Bu durumu acıma duygusu ile seyreden Keloğlan’mış. Şişmanoğlan’a doğru çok sert bir hareketle hızla dönmüş. Kaşlarını çatmış:

    " There, you see that Şişmanoğlan . You dream within a dream is over. Now I 'm your virtual dream . Freeliver like to see the waist waist , if you continue to sit back in the end what will happen . In the past you were like me , did Keloğlan . He was strong , agile remember , remember hardworking . And now look at you. Not move a finger to come to you . I'm asking you here for months. What if you win ? Here, too tired to think no avail . Let me tell you the answer : Did not win anything , did you also lose health . Look at me when Şişmanoğlan . My bother me . Or you can go back to the old days , or enter into dream every night , it would beat you with a stick , "he said , remove the stick and started hitting Şişmanoğlan . Awakened from a nightmare that saw Şişmanoğlan wailing . Covered in sweat , though each side hurts .

    “ İşte gördün Şişmanoğlan. Rüya içinde gördüğün rüya bitti. Şimdi ben senin asıl rüyanım. Böyle bol bol yiyip bel bel bakınmaya, yan gelip yatmaya devam edersen sonunun ne olacağını anladın. Eskiden sen de benim gibiydin, Keloğlan’dın. Kuvvetliydin, çeviktin, çalışkandın. Ya şimdi şu haline bak. Parmağını bile kıpırdatmak sana zor geliyor.
    Sorarım sana aylardır buradasın. Ne kazandın sanki? Dur, hiç boşuna düşünüp de yorulma. Cevabını söyleyeyim: Hiçbir şey kazanmadın, ayrıca sağlığını kaybettin. Bana bak Şişmanoğlan. Benim canımı sıkma. Ya eski günlere geri dönersin, ya da her gece rüyalarına girer, bu sopayla seni döverim “ demiş, sopayı kaldırmış ve Şişmanoğlan’a vurmaya başlamış. Şişmanoğlan gördüğü korkulu rüyadan feryat ederek uyanmış. Ter içindeymiş, her tarafı ağrıyormuş.

    " I've eaten at dinner too much rice . I think this is why I'm seeing this nightmare , "he said to himself. In your dreams, they started coming sake . Eventually, in the Keloğlan ' dreams have decided that what they say is the absolute truth . Description is as follows have done : Human surely it should work comes from the study of living in idleness , which was lazing human crises will ship the crisis , the appearance of the human to human may vary, in itself, this situation plenty of eating occur in the form and consequently the fat aware that it has , it is difficult the only way out of the situation is to start working again understand .

    “ Akşam yemeğinde haddinden fazla pilav yemiştim. Bu korkulu rüyayı görmemin sebebi bu herhalde “ demiş kendi kendine. Rüyasında gördükleri hatırına gelmeye başlamış. Sonunda, rüyasındaki Keloğlan’ın söylediklerinin mutlak doğru olduğuna karar vermiş. Açıklamasını ise şöyle yapmış: İnsanın mutlaka çalışması lazım geldiği, çalışmadan yaşamanın tembellik olduğu, tembelliğin insanı bunalımlara sevk edeceği, bunalımın ortaya çıkış biçiminin insandan insana değişebileceğini, kendisinde bu durumun bol bol yemek yeme şeklinde meydana geldiğini ve bunun sonucu olarak şişmanladığının bilincine vardığını, bu zor durumdan kurtulmanın tek yolunun yeniden çalışmaya başlamak olduğunu anlamış.

    The sun rising again to return to the Land of the Rich towards the village on their way to say goodbye . As in the past , you know that hard-working days close , like crochet Keloğlan sees in the imagination as it happens.

    Sabah güneş doğarken bir daha dönmemek üzere Zenginler Ülkesi’ne veda edip köyüne doğru yollara düşmüş. Eskiden olduğu gibi, çalışkan günlerin yakın olduğunu biliyor, hayalinde tığ gibi Keloğlan’ı görür gibi oluyormuş.

The greatest success , however, has joined five penguin has become the third in a race . This situation penguins bored one day runner has left his hometown and went to swim in Argentina.

    Monkey smiled :

    "That depends . I'll race you there Let's see who will be next to the first tree . "

    A little later the race began. Runners up in the final meters of the race penguin took a step ahead , but suddenly reducing the speed of the monkey helped win the race . In this penguin runner , won the race , but as I passed the monkey or she is bored with me one more does not race , thinking he was effective.

    In the days following the penguin runners continued their friendship with the monkeys . Sometimes they do , sometimes runners in the race penguin, monkey sometimes was the first.

    One day the two friends begin to complete the race , they heard a rustling in the grass . Now they stood up to the side of the sound and saw a turtle came towards them .

    Penguin Runner :

This was thought to remain in Argentina, where so much loved . When finished runner penguin singing with stentorian voice : " Argentina is my home , I'm not staying here, " he shouted .


    Güney Kutbu’nda koşuya çok meraklı bir penguen yaşardı. Bu penguen devamlı olarak antrenman yapar, yarışmalara hazırlanırdı ve hep ön sırada yarışmayı bitirmeyi hayal ederdi, fakat ya sonuncu ya da sondan bir önceki olarak yarışı tamamlardı. En büyük başarısı ise, beş penguenin katıldığı bir yarışta üçüncü olmaktı. Bu duruma canı sıkılan koşucu penguen bir gün doğup büyüdüğü yerleri terk etti ve yüzerek Arjantin’e gitti. Koşucu penguen burada bir maymunla arkadaş oldu. Bir gün maymuna:

    “ Şu yüz metre ilerdeki ağaca kadar yarışsak, beni geçebilir misin? “ diye sordu.

    Maymun gülümsedi:

    “ Belli olmaz. Yarışalım da görelim bakalım kim önce ağacın yanına varacak. “

    Biraz sonra yarış başladı. Son metrelere kadar koşucu penguen yarışı bir adım önde götürdü, fakat aniden hızını azaltıp, maymunun yarışı kazanmasını sağladı. Bunda koşucu penguenin, yarışı kazandım gibi ama ya maymunun geçildi diye canı sıkılır da bir daha benimle yarışmazsa, diye düşünmesi etkili oldu.

    Sonraki günlerde koşucu penguen ile maymun arkadaşlıklarını sürdürdüler. Ara sıra yaptıkları yarışlarda bazen koşucu penguen, bazen de maymun birinci oldu.

    Günlerden bir gün iki kafadar tam yarışa başlarken, otların arasında bir hışırtı duydular. Hemen doğrulup sesin geldiği tarafa döndüler ve bir kaplumbağanın kendilerine doğru geldiğini gördüler.

    Koşucu penguen:

    “ Merhaba arkadaş, biz karşıdaki ağaca kadar yarışacağız. Bu yarışa sen de katılmak ister misin? “ diye sordu.


    “ Ben ikinizi de geçerim “ dedikten sonra, koşucu penguenin ilk, maymunun ikinci sırada tamamladığı yarışta onlardan çok çok sonra yarışı tamamladı. Üçü daha sonraki günlerde defalarca yarıştı, kaplumbağa her yarıştan önce iddialı konuştu fakat hep sonuncu oldu.

    Bir gün kaplumbağa kaplumbağalar arası koşu yarışmasına katılacağını ve birinci olacağını söyledikten sonra:

    “ Kesin birinci benim. Bak görürsünüz, ben yarışı en ön sırada tamamlarım. Onlar benle boy ölçüşemez. Zafer benimdir “ dedi. Kaplumbağa yarışı baştan sona önde götürüp birinci oldu.

    Maymun da maymunlar arası koşu yarışmasına katıldı ve dördüncü oldu. Maymun yarışma öncesi hep birinci olamayacağını söyledi. Koşucu penguen çok uğraştı birinci olacağına inandırmak için. Aralarındaki tartışmalar neredeyse kavgaya dönüşecekti ki, koşucu penguen fazla ileri gitmedi:

    “ Sen birinci olacağım demedikten sonra, kendini buna inandırmadıktan sonra zaten birinci olamazsın. Kazanmak için, kazanacağım demek gerekir. Bu kibirlilik demek değildir, büyük düşünmek demektir. Büyük düşünmeden büyük işler başarılamaz. Kazanacağım, birinci olacağım de, birinci ol “ diyerek çok ısrar etti fakat dinletemedi.

    Burada maymunu fazla suçlamamak gerekir. Maymun yakın çevresinden büyük düşünmenin ve büyük konuşmanın yanlış olduğunu pek çok defa dinlemişti. Bu ortaçağ kalığı zihniyeti onun kafasından söküp atmak zordu. Koşucu penguen bu durumun farkına vardığı için, yarışmadan sonraki günlerde aynı konuyu maymunla tekrar tekrar konuşmak ihtiyacını hissetti. Maymunun şampiyon olacağına inancı sonsuzdu. Aradan zaman geçti ve öyle bir an geldi ki, maymun birinciliklere abone oldu.

    Bir süre sonra koşucu penguen, Güney Kutbu’na geri dönmeye karar verdi. Tanıdıklarıyla vedalaştığının ertesi günü sahile indiğinde on binlerce orman hayvanının göz alabildiğince okyanusun önünde sıralandığını gördü. Az sonra giderek genişleyen birçok dairenin ortasında kalan koşucu penguen, on binlerin “ Arjantin senin vatanın, gitme burada kal “ şarkısını söylemeye başlamasıyla duygulandı ve gözleri doldu. Bu kadar çok sevildiği Arjantin’de kalmayı düşündü. Şarkı bitince koşucu penguen gür sesiyle: “ Arjantin benim vatanım, gitmiyorum, burada kalıyorum “ diye bağırdı.

    Bir zamanlar Anadolu'da bir garip KELOĞLAN yaşarmış. Çalışmayı sevmezmiş ama bizim tarladan ürün toplanacak, gel bir el atıver KELOĞLAN, diyen konu komşunun yardımına koşarmış. Domates, biber, patlıcan toplarmış. İş bitince para veren olmaz, sadece öğle yemeği tarhana çorbası. Eh, öğlenleri evde anam zaten tarhana çorbası pişiriyor, neden çalışıp yorulayım der ve yan gelip yatarmış.

    Bir sabah vakti gökyüzünde bulutlar toplanmış, ortalık kararmış ve şiddetli bir yağmur başlamış. Yağdıkça yağmış ve sonunda yağmur damlaları birleşip sel olmuş. Çevrede ne ev bırakmış, ne ahır, ne tarla, ne bahçe. Hepsini silip süpürmüş, alıp götürmüş. KELOĞLAN ile anası bir ağaca çıkıp selden kurtulmuşlar.

    Yağmur yarım saatte dinmiş. KELOĞLAN ile anası ağaçtan inmiş. KELOĞLAN yağmura çok kızgınmış. Yağmuru yağdıran buluta seslenmiş:

    " Ey bulut, koca bulut, artık sen iyiyi unut.
    Nedir derdin çabuk söyle, bakma yüzüme öyle.
    Bir evi olanın evini yıktın, neden sen onları evsiz bıraktın?
    Anamla ben de evsiz kaldık, dipsiz kuyularda dertlendik kaldık. "

    KELOĞLAN 'ın sitem dolu sözleri üzerine bulut dile gelmiş:

    " KELOĞLAN, KELOĞLAN, utanıyorum, senin yüzüne bakamıyorum.
    Ben nedensiz sinirlenirim, bolca yağar geçer giderim.
    Düşünmem insanlar sağ mı kalır, hayvanlar ne olur?
    Tarlaları, bahçeleri talan eder geçerim. "

    KELOĞLAN 'ın isteği üzerine bulut zamanı yirmi dört saat önceye almış. Ertesi gün yine o bölgeye yağmur yağmış ama azar azar, beş saatte yağmış ve hiçbir yeri su basmamış, sel gelmemiş. Böylece bulut meselelerin akılcı çözümlerle başarılı olabileceğini öğrenmiş olmuş.

    Vaktiyle çok yüksek surları olan ve bir kral tarafından yönetilen bir şehir devleti varmış. Halk, huzur içinde yaşıyormuş. Günlerden bir gün ormandan gelen iki ejderha şehrin giriş kapısının sağ ve sol yanına oturmuşlar. Kendilerine her gün birer insanın kurban olarak verilmesini yoksa şehri yıkacaklarını söylemişler.

    Doğduğunda ayakları sağlamdı. Arkadaşlarıyla birlikte derede yüzer, çimenlerde koşar, oynardı. Sevgi yüklüydü. Bir arkadaşı şakayla karışık hafiften vursa, karşılık vermez ama canı sıkılır, oyun oynuyorlarsa oyunla ilgisi kalmaz, uzaklaşıp giderdi. Yaşı büyüdükçe kendi de büyüdü, boy attı. Onun bu iyi niyetli, temiz yürekli davranışları, sözleri, hareketleri büyükler tarafından hep horlandı. Pek çok yerde alay konusu oldu. Onu daima dışladılar, aralarında barındırmadılar. O da ne yapsın, çareyi, sevgili küçük dostlarından ayrılmamakta buldu.

    Koşardı, dere boyunda uzun koşulara çıkardı. Daha ileriye, daha ileriye gitmek, oraları da görmek isterdi. Severdi koşmayı. Koşmadan, terlemeden bir yaşam düşünemezdi. Hele o koşudan sonrası sıfır noktasına gelme, şu dünyanın tüm dertlerinin, sıkıntılarının birkaç saatliğine de olsa sıfırlandığı enfes zaman dilimini tatmayan bilmezdi.

    Şu bizim ördek yani Omar, ormanda yalnız başına gezerken, bir ağacın arkasından çıkıp ayağını ısıran tilkiden zor kurtuldu. Tilkinin sivri dişlerinden öteki ayağıyla vurduğu tekmeyle kurtulan Omar, kaçarak canını kurtardı. Yuvasına gidip ayağını yıkadı, temiz bir bezle sardı. İki gün dinlenen Omar, daha sonra dere kıyısında kısa yürüyüşlere çıkarak ayağının hareket kabiliyetini geliştirmek istiyordu. Sol ayağı üzerine tam basamama durumu vardı ya zamanla düzelir diyordu. Diğer yandan hayat devam ediyordu. Omar ağır aksak yürüyüşüyle küçük dostlarının yanına gitti. Dostlarının hepsi, Omar’ın durumuna çok üzüldüler. Omar’ın gözyaşlarına hakim olamaması sonucu, onunla birlikte ağladılar.

    Dile kolay aradan tam altı ay geçti. Bu sürede onun ayağı hiçbir düzelme göstermedi. Sol ayak topuğundaki yara kapanmış, tamamen iyileşmişti ama topuğunun üstüne basmakta güçlük çekiyordu. Bastığı zaman da ne biçim acıyordu. O, en çok koşamadığı için üzülüyordu. Yaşıtları büyük ördekler, onun yürüyüş şeklini gülümsemeyle karşılamışlar ve ona gerçek adını unutturmuşlardı. Artık yeni bir adı vardı: Topal Ördek


    A kangaroo hadn’t been able to have a baby
    It had adopted a rabbit and had put it into its bag
    The kangaroo had been happy and so had the rabbit
    But the others had been angry so,

    They had made a plan to get rid of the rabbit
    They had kidnapped the rabbit while sleeping
    The kangaroo had seen her empty bag when she had woken up
    She had been shocked and sorry

    And had made an arrangement with the poisonous snake
    In the bag had been the snake and the kangaroo among the others
    Being afraid of the snake the others had given the rabbit back
    And they had said that that was a plan in a plan.


    Kangurunun birinin yavrusu olmazmış
    Bir tavşanı evlat edinip torbasına koymuş
    Kanguru memnun, tavşan mutlu
    Ama diğer kangurular kızgınmışlar.

    Tavşandan kurtulmak için, bir plan yapmışlar
    Onlar uykudayken tavşanı kaçırmışlar
    Kanguru uyanınca bakmış torbası boş
    Şaşırmış kalmış buna olmuş içi bir hoş.

    Kanguru zehirli yılanla anlaşma yapmış
    Torbada yılan, kanguru kangurular arasında
    Yılandan korkan kangurular tavşanı geri vermişler
    Plan plan içinde böyle olur demişler.



    An African Negro Boy
    Had been a magician’s apprentice
    Had changed himself into an elephant
    Instead of changing an elephant into human

    While he had been walking,
    In the fields and mountains
    A huge thorn had pricked his foot
    The elephant had felt too much pain

    He had asked the lion, the tiger, the eagle
    The fox, the wolf, the owl
    The rabbit for help
    Whoever had seen the elephant had run away.

    Mourning and crying
    The elephant had returned to his village
    His mother, father, uncle
    Had escaped from the elephant with childish voice.

    But brave Toro
    Moro’s friend
    Hadn’t known what fear had been
    Had pulled the thorn out.

    Moro had been an elephant forever
    Hadn’t left Toro
    Their story had become
    Legendary in the world.


    Afrikalı bir zenci çocuk
    Büyücü çırağıymış
    Fili insan yapayım darken
    Kendini fil yapmış

    Dağlarda, bayırlarda
    Gezerken ayağına
    Kocaman bir diken batmış
    Filin canı çok acımış

    Aslandan, kaplandan, kartaldan
    Tilkiden, kurttan, baykuştan
    Tavşandan yardım istemiş
    Fili gören korkup kaçmış

    Fil ağlana, sızlana
    Köyüne geri dönmüş
    Anası, babası, amcası
    Çocuk sesli filden kaçmış

    Fakat cesur Toro
    Moro’nun arkadaşı
    Korku nedir bilmezmiş
    Dikeni çekip çıkarmış

    Moro hep fil kalmış
    Toro’dan ayrılmamış
    Onların öyküleri
    Dünyada destanlaşmış.



    There was an old woman
    In the night, day she was crying
    Continually shedding her tears
    Splashing like a spring.

    Home you designate is only a room
    How can we live in there?
    Always have soap in the mourning and evening
    Troubles are waiting for their turn.

    One day a man arrived at there
    Gave greeting with the woman
    “I purchased this place
    Make it emptied” he said.

    “Woe to my aggrieved head
    My tears never stopped shedding
    Where can l go to
    Have no stone already erected, too.”

    “You are existing today, tomorrow you are absent
    Have a habitation for yourself;
    You assemble your bed
    on the land over there…”

    “Heavens! Is it acceptable, my son,
    To hit a kick to who fallen down?
    Don’t make, don’t act,
    Is it possible to stay in the street?”

    Day turned, tomorrow arrived
    She moved from her room
    Her friend in the night
    Was moon and star…


    Bir yaşlı kadın vardı
    Gece, gündüz ağlardı
    Gözyaşları durmadan
    Çağlayan bir pınardı.

    Ev dediğin tek oda
    Yaşanır mı burada?
    Sabah, akşam hep çorba
    Dertler bekler sırada.

    Bir gün bir adam geldi
    Kadına selam verdi
    “Satın aldım burayı
    Boşalt odayı “dedi.

    “Vay benim dertli başım
    Hiç dinmedi gözyaşım
    Nerelere giderim
    Yok bir dikili taşım.“ .

    “Bugün var, yarın yoksun
    Kalacak yerin olsun;
    Karşıdaki arsaya
    Yatağını kurarsın. ”

    “Aman oğlum olur mu?
    Düşene vurulur mu?
    Etmeyin, eylemeyin
    Sokakta yatılır mı? “

    Gün döndü, yarın oldu
    Odasından taşındı
    Geceleri arkadaş
    Ay ile yıldız oldu.
