I came upon some mighty beautiful Turkish songs that read as a great poetry, so I though, why not share some?

That's one of my faves:

Islak Islak

Gecenin nemi mi düşmüş gözlerine?
Ne olur ıslak ıslak bakma öyle

Saçını dök sineme derdini söyle
Yeter ki ıslak ıslak bakma öyle

Sürerim buluttan tarlaları
Yağmurlar ekerim göğün göğsüne
Güneşte demlerim senin çayını
Yüreğimden süzer öyle veririm

Ben feleğin şu çarkına çomak sokarım
Ben felegin tekerine çomak sokarım
Yeter ki ıslak ıslak bakma öyle
Ne olur ıslak ıslak bakma öyle.


Unfortunately  found the English translation that are available somewhat stiff and not really bringing about the complex expression of the poem, but the Russian translation that I found is fantastic, so I'll give it together with one of the English ones:


Мокрыми глазами

Разве на твоих глаз падала влажность ночи?
Пожалуйста не смотри так мокрими глазами.

Сып свои волосы на мою грудь, расскажи о своей беде,
Только не смотри так мокрыми глазами.

Распашу поля из облаки,
Посажу на грудь неба дожды ,
Заварю чай тебе на солнце,
И подам процеженный через свое сердце.

Я нарушу порядок той судьбы,
Я суну палочку на колесо судбы,
Только ты не смотри так мокрими глазами,
Пожалуйста не смотри так мокрими глазами.


Tearful Eyes

Has the moisture of the night fallen into your eyes?
Please don't look at me with wet eyes
Pour your hair into my chest
As long as you don't look at me with wet eyes

I plough the fields made of clouds
I plant rains in the chest of the sky
I steep your tea under the sun
I filter it in my heart that's how i give it to you

I put a spoke in the wheel of the fate
I put a spoke in the wheel of the fate
As long as you don't look at me with wet eyes


Baris Akarsu, harica! I posted he song in the music section of the forum.

Ellerin Kabe'si var,
Benim Kabem İnsandır
