ANLATAMIYORUM (MORO ROMANTICO)

Aglasam sesimi duyar misiniz,
Misralarimda;
Dokunabilir misiniz,
Gozyaslarima, ellerinizle?

Bilmezdim sarkilarin bu kadar guzel,
Kelimelerinse kifayetsiz oldugunu
Bu derde dusmeden once.

Bir yer var, biliyorum;
Her seyi soylemek mumkun;
Epiyce yaklasmisim, duyuyorum;
Anlatamiyorum.
         ORHAN VELI

 

I CAN´T TELL

If I cry, would you hear me,
in my verses,
could you touch my tears,
with your hands?

I didn´t know that the songs are so beautiful,
the words are so insufficient
before I fell into this trouble.

There is a place, I know;
It is possible to say everything;
I am pretty close, I can hear;
I can´t tell.
