Birlik -29 January 1993, Sohbet –Oguz Metiner
a lament, elegy, eulogy for the teacher of teachers, his teaching, in verse

A Star's Passed Away

Passed away from amongst us a star-true,
In the last days of nineteen-ninety-two,
Inspiring all around his deeds of illumination,
Speedily as he moved on to his destination;
And to our senses having he brought us,
We, quietly, buried him in our hearts.

Well known and versed, none was he
Than the pilgrim, the Teacher: Orhan Ari

His concern –so sincere!…
Greatly respected everywhere!…
Years spent to illuminate…
More: hearts, his sultanate!

With his pupils was spent half his lifetime at schools
And at places of worship the other with the faithfuls,
As built his honesty a throne, in every heart, that rules!

Revealed was his departure-shortly for the here-after
For, late-before, he had told his friends-closer
I was time he would meet his maker.

I did not take long.. he attained his ultimate desire;
And, having left his worldly possessions to his near and dear,
He settled on the throne of omniscience in the world after here.

Lie in radiance, in paradise you rest!
The exalted prophet himself to intercede for you –the best!
Rejoice his grand soul, with God's best graces blest!

President Rauf Denktas, Northern Cyprus Turkish Republic -letter 18 December 1992

The death... of the estimable Orhan Seyfi Ari caused me great sadness

Hakki Atun, Leader KKTC Parliament -on loss of teacher of teachers letter 22 December 1992

We shall always remember him with respect and love...

Halkin Sesi, Bu Dunyadan Seyfi Gecti –on this teacher Harid Fedai 27 December 1992

Such nice things I had heard of him!..
Gladdens his soul, I hope, this quatrain...

Aware was not I; unbeknown, harmony was you all through
Under skins, treasured forever by thoughts innermost too
Seeking of you insight the wonders of the universe into
I knew, at last, this, that the universe was you
