Diyelim ıslık çalacaksın ıslık
Sen ıslık çalınca
Ne ıslık çalıyor diye şaşacak herkes
Kimse çalamamalı senin gibi güzel

Örneğin kıyıya çarpan dalgaları sayacaksın
Senden önce kimse saymamış olmalı
Senin saydığın gibi doğru ve güzel
Hem dalgaları hem saymasını severek

De ki sinek avlıyorsun sinek
En usta sinek avcısı olmalısın
Dünya sinek avcıları örgütünde yerin başta
Örgüt yoksa seninle başlamalı

Say ki hiçbir işin yok da düşünüyorsun
Düşün düşünebildiğince üç boyutlu
Amma da düşünüyor diye şaşsın dünya
Sanki senden önce düşünen hiç olmamış

Dalga mı geçiyorsun düşler mi kuruyorsun
Öyle sonsuz sınırsız düşler kur ki çocuğum
Düşlerini som somut görüp şaşsınlar
Böyle bir dalgacı daha dünyaya gelmedi desinler

Dünyada yapılmamış işler çoktur çocuğum
Derlerse ki bu işler bişeye yaramaz
De ki bütün işe yarayanlar
İşe yaramaz sanılanlardan çıkar

(ÇOCUKLARIMA - Aziz Nesin)

its translation like (with my poor english) :

if you will whistle,
when you whistle
people gotto be suprised to hear how kind of whistle is it
noone should whistle as nice as you can

if you will count the waves which will beat the coast,
noone should count them before you
noone can do it as much as correct and nice as you can count
by loving to count the waves

say that, you are hunting flies
the most skilful fly-hunter should be you
you gotto be the minister of the world fly-hunters organisation
if there is no any such organisation, you gotto found it

Thnik that you have no work but only think
Think, as much as 3d as you can :)
The world should be curious to see ya how you think
Like.. noone has thought as much as you thought

Are you shirking and always dreaming?
Dream endless dreams
To make people to see how is your dreams are reallty
They gotto say that no person has been in world as much as shirker as you are

My kid, there are many works undone in the world
Even they say that it is no good for anything
Say that everything which is good for something...
... is from the things which pretented to be no good

PS: this poem is from aziz nesin ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aziz_Nesin ) who is an atheist guy
he has a kind of organisation/school for poor children in turkey to educate:
