The most beautiful sea

Still not sure if this is a poem or a quote, but that doesn’t really matter. Turkish poet Nazim Hikmet is considered to be a romantic communist, weird as that may sound. You won’t find a lot of communism in this poem, but you’ll surely find a lot of romance.

The most beautiful sea 
hasn’t been crossed yet.

The most beautiful child 
hasn’t grown up yet.

Our most beautiful days 
we haven’t seen yet.

And the most beautiful words I wanted to tell you
I haven’t said yet…

Nazim Hikmet
