If you post your links here, I can add them to the list if they are good enough. Cheers,
Erdinç

1. Our pages on Turkish Poetry.
Pages of this very website.

2. Essays of our website members
If you are interested on writing, you could post your essay as well.

3. Contemporary Turkish Literature

The website is published by "Boğaziçi Ãœniversitesi", one of the best universities in Turkia.
The good thing about it is that it has sample texts in English of the authors. So it is not only poetry but literature in general. One of my favorite authors is Oğuz Atay and I was happy to see him there as well.

4. Turkish Poetry
On the left choose "şairlerimiz" and a list will appear. There are no translations. It is Turkish only.

5. Orhan Veli translations by Murat Nemet-Nejat
This link was mentioned by slavica.

6. Orhan Veli translations by Talat Halman
It's interesting to compare to the above one. Interestingly I find too many smillarities between the two.
This link was mentioned by cyrano.

7. Turkish Poetry in Translation
Many famous Turkish poets can be found here translated into English.
This link was mentioned by slavica.

8. Turkish Poetry
The translations of poems you will find here are collected from different websites. So nothing original here but a good collection.
This link was mentioned by bliss.

a poem from the president of centuries M. K. Ataturk,


Hayat kısacık
Birazcık hayal
Biraz da sevgi
Derken merhaba

Hayat anlamsız
Birazcık hüzün
Biraz da umut
Derken elveda

M.K. Atatürk


Life is too short
some dream
also some love
when saying hello

Life is meaningless
some sadness
also some hope
when saying Goodbye
