Night with deer (Geyikli Gece) is the name of a great poem by Turgut Uyar

It’s about urbanization and its reflections on individual

“There is nothing to be scared of/everything is made up of nylon that’s all…/
before we found the night with deer/ We were all afraid like children./You should all know the night with deer/ In far off forests wild and green/ Sun sinking slowly over the asphalt road/ Redeeming us all from time//…

But you are pitiful and so am I/No longer consoled by things that have grown old/…2-16 (Turgut Uyar)
