Yahya Kemal BEYATLI and Edip Cansever

From Another Hill
I looked at you from another hill, dear Istanbul!
I know you like back of my hand, and love you dearly.

Come, come and sit on my heart's throne as long as I live
Just to love a district of yours is worth a whole life.

There are many flourishing cities in the world.
But you're the only one who creates enchanting beauty.

I say, he who has lived happily, in the longest dream,
Is he who spent his life in you, died in you, and was buried in you

EYES

It seems nothing can provoke
Our inner silence
No sound no word nothing
The eyes bring out the eyes!

Nothing else but this unites us
A leaf touching another leaf
So close and so docile
The hands bring out the hands!

In our age love is an opposition
Let us unite to cast two single shadows...

Edip Cansever
Translated by Talat Sait Halman
