Yunus Emre is one of the most famous Sufi religious Turkish poets, who lived in the third and fourteenth centuries, and Yunus Emre poetry was famous in the Turkish language, unlike what was known at that time in writing poetry in Persian or Arabic.

Yunus Emre poetry still remains popular today, some 700 years after his death, he wrote his poetry the same way he spoke to people in central and western Anatolia.

Yunus Emre traveled and taught among the rural poor, sang his songs in Turkish for the general public.

First Poem

Allah permeates the whole world.
However, his truth was not revealed to anyone.
You better look for it in yourself.

The other world is out of sight.
Here on Earth we must live upright.
Exile is agony, pain and blight.
Nobody returns once they are gone.

Come on let us be friends for once,
let us make life easy for us,
let us be lovers and loved ones,
leave the earth to no one.

For you, what Yunus says is clear, what it
means in the ear of your heart:
We must all live the good life here,
because no one will continue to live here.

Yunus Emre Poetry (second poem)

If I rub my face on the ground, my
new moon will rise in the sky,
winter and summer become spring.
For me all holidays.

Never let any cloud cast
a shadow over the brilliant moonlight
that must never be dimmed:
from earth to sky sprinkled by a twinkle.

From the solitary heart cell
its luster comes out darkness.
How do you squeeze this
same cell depression with piercing rays?

I see my moon here on earth,
what am I going to do with all of the sky?
The rain of mercy poured on me
from this land where I fix my looks.

What if Jonah was a friend of
many who loved God.
Yunus, too, bends his head
as it is lit with God’s love

Yunus Emre poetry third poet

Knowledge is knowing
Knowledge is knowing yourself.
If you do not know yourself,
what is the use of this knowledge?

What is meant by the reading?
first reading is to know the truth
to read because you do not know

Do not say, I am reading and I know
Do not say that I have done many acts of obedience.
If you do not know the truth,
then you have come in vain to earth

The meaning of four books
in a certain letter thousand
if you do not know the thousand

What a reading!

Twenty-nine letters
read end-to-end
Would you say a thousand, Master?
What does it mean?

Yunus Emrah says to you, “Teacher,
if necessary, perform pilgrimage a thousand times.”

But if you ask me

pilgrimage to the heart is the best
