Leraneh - Msho Gorani

“Biraz kartol, biraz sımışka, biraz da peynir koyup büyük bir bezin içine denk yaptım, vurdum kendimi yola. Kars’ın tepelerine kamp kurdum. Sırtımı toprağa verip göğü seyrettim. Ülkenin sesini dinledim. Sınırdaki harabelere kadar gidip yıkık köprüleri izledim. Sözcükleri yan yana getirmeyi kuşlardan, sözcükleri kanatmayı insanlardan öğrendim.

Yeğişe Çarents

— Bu tınıda “yâre” sözcüğü ‘güneş tadındaki meyve’ gibi duruyor, ağızda.
