The most beautiful ocean

Saturday 27 January 2018

The most beautiful ocean

is the one we have not yet seen,

The most beautiful child

has not yet grown up.

Our most beautiful days

are those we have not yet lived

And the most beautiful things I would like to tell you

I have not yet told.

Nazim Hikmet

(Translated from the Turkish by Ali Yunus)
