Quoting adonis:

It's obvious to say that this attempt of vineyards is much better than the other thread. I want to thank vineyards to open this title.

good stuff..

Competition is good but in this case, there is no other reward than enjoying poetry and sharing...

I've already said I like the other version too. If there was someone else who'd come up with yet another version, that would really be nice. This is an open invitation.

Quoting vineyards:

Love is a cicada in my ear hole
-To be dressed doth a man wear
and a woman so to be bare-
Since they thusly desire
I see all women naked

In my perineum a new born kitten
keeps licking my manhood
My pulse is throbbing on my temple
Then a summer rain befalls
Not blood but a whitish dope
comes out of my schlong

Cicadas are still whizzing
They are just a little wet now

This is my attempt. As the other thread has gone out of control, I am starting a new one. I've found thehandsome's translation very good but there are many ways to translate a poem and when the poet is Yucel there are indeed many.

There is no shame in art. It is all about humans. Authors, storytellers and poets have a license to reflect human nature without any restrictions. They can narrate things with an omniscient point of view.

Although not a personal favourite; at least, this one makes me wonder about the inexplicable sexual thoughts that pass through people's minds. Are we all innocent? What is innocence in the first place?

This version has a certain "je ne sais quoi" to it, a little more finesse, where as TheHansoms was a little more "rough round the edges".

This translation is looking at it more from a Freud position, renowned for his his psycho-sexual theories and sexual desire motivated human life.

Yeah i agree libralady i thought it sounded like something Freud would right.Hmm interesting and no doubt he would have an explanation for it.

The poem is uploaded. I combined the translations of thehandsom and vineyards according to own thoughts. Hope you are content with the result.
