TO HONOUR OF OUR GENERAL
– THE MARTYR POLAD GASHIMOV
(elegy)

Became to the martyr for the sake of land Pasha,
Died together with İlqar , he…
You are in paradise ,you didn’t die ! YOU LIVE !!!
Oh, the steel- willed , my Polad Pasha

Lands mourn to your death
Flowers cry, roses cry
Hearts cry , tongues cry
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !

I kiss your mother’s crying eyes ,
Word – Dad -which says – your baby,
I kiss your innocent, shining face,
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !

You became like Mehdi , and Khazi ,
You took enemy’s – from right and left ,
You took the death ,my hero, at last …
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !

Worldly – goods , was nothing in his eyes ,
Land was his inner world , like Mubariz ,
Your enemy – was the crafty born one ,
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !

You went to war and battle, with İlkham
Our rotten – enemy is a handful of nothing ,
My Pasha is like lion, and tiger ,
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !

You were honest, you were a hard worker
Secretly you would helped the soldiers,
You left in tears Vuqar Akhmed ,
Steel -willed , Oh Polad Pasha !
