For the full passage of the poem: 

Strontium 90
by Nazim HIKMET


Weather's gotten strange,
Now sun, then rain, then snow.
It's from nuclear bomb testings, they say.

Strontium 90, they say, is raining

on weed, milk, meat,

on hope, freedom,

on the great longing whose door we knock on

We are in a race with ourselves, my rose.
Either we will take life to dead stars,
Or death will descend upon our world.

16 March 1958, Warsaw.
Translated by Figen Bingül

Original of the poem

Stronsium 90

Acayiplesti havalar,
bir günes, bir yagmur, bir kar.
Atom bombasi denemelerinden diyorlar.

Stronsium 90 yagiyormus

                         ota, süte, ete,

                         umuda, hürriyete,

                         kapisini çaldigimiz büyük hasrete.

Kendi kendimizle yaristayiz, gülüm.
Ya ölü yildizlara hayati götürecegiz,
ya dünyamiza inecek ölüm.


16 Mart 1958, Varsova
