 Oopps . In fact, that´s because I always confuse "president" and "prime minister" in english.

MY DEAR ISTANBUL

They have melted my souland frozen it in a mould;
They have named it Istanbul, and put it on earth.
There´s something smoking inside me;air,colour,grace,and climate;
That´s my beloved who came from beyond time and place,
Its flowers are golden stars,its water is sweet;
The moon and the sun have always been Istanbulian.
The sea and the earth have reached their union in her
And the dreams have turned reality in her.
Istanbul is my life;
my motherland...
Istanbul,
Istanbul...

History has eyes,the riddles on ancient walls;
Cypresses,cypresses are of fine stature,they are the curtains of two worlds...
A steed rears up on the clouds;
Diamond domes,perhaps there are billions of steeds...
The minarets are index fingers pointing to the sky.
In every embroidery a meaning:we must die.
Death is more alive than life,mercy is greater than sin;
When Beyoglu is drowning in worldly pleasures,
Karacaahmet weeps..
Seek the meaning,find it!
Find it in Istanbul!
Istanbul,
Istanbul...

The Bosphorus,the silver brazier of the Bosphorus,boils the coolness;
The depths of heaven on earth are in Camlica.
Playful waters are the guests in the basement of the sea-side house;
A photo of the sad face of a former diplomat hangs on the wall.
Every evening flames on the windows in Uskudar,
A hounted house,big as the city...
A song from the Ud or the Tanbour?
It sings ´´Katibim´´ behind the bay-windows...
Its women are like sharp knives,
Warm like fresh blood,
Istanbul,
Istanbul...

Time on the seven hills embroiders
Seven colours,seven voices,endless manifestation...!
Eyup is orphan,Kadikoy is dressed up,Moda is haughty,
Wind in the Island plays tricks with the girls.
Each dawn,the arrows fly from their bows.
Cries come from Topkapi Palace still.
The mothers are the best of sweethearts,Istanbul is the best of palaces;
Never mind the cheerful crowd,those who cry are happier.
Its night smells hyacinth,
Its Turkish the nightingale´s voice.
Istanbul,
Istanbul...

The Turkish translation kindly PM´d to me by Texasizzit

 

Caným Ýstanbul

Ruhumu eritip de kalýpta dondurmuþlar; 
Onu Ýstanbul diye topraða kondurmuþlar. 
Ýçimde tüten birþey; hava, renk, eda, iklim; 
O benim, zaman, mekan aþýp geçmiþ sevgilim. 
Çiçeði altýn yaldýz, suyu telli pulludur; 
Ay ve güneþ ezelden iki Ýstanbulludur. 
Denizle toprak, yalnýz onda ermiþ visale, 
Ve kavuþmuþ rüyalar, onda, onda misale. 

Ýstanbul benim canim; 
Vatanim da vatanim... 
Ýstanbul, 
Ýstanbul... 

Tarihin gözleri var, surlarda delik; 
Servi, endamlý servi, ahirete perdelik... 
Bulutta saha kalkmýþ Fatih´ten kalma kir at; 
Pýrlantadan kubbeler, belki bir milyar kýrat... 
Þahadet parmaðýdýr göðe doðru minare; 
Her nakýsta o mana: Öleceðiz ne çare? 
Hayattan canlý olum, günahtan baskýn rahmet; 
Beyoðlu tepinirken aðlar Karaca Ahmet... 

O manayý bul da bul! 
Ýlle Ýstanbul’da bul! 
Ýstanbul, 
Ýstanbul... 

Boðaz gümüþ bir mangal, kaynatýr serinliði; 
Çamlýca´da, yerdedir göklerin derinliði. 
Oynak sular yalýnýn alt katýna misafir; 
Yeni dünyadan mahzun, resimde eski sefir. 
Her aksam camlarýnda yangýn çýkan Üsküdar, 
Perili ahþap konak, koca bir þehir kadar... 
Bir ses, bilemem tambur gibi mi, uda gibi mi? 
Cumbalý odalarda inletir katibi mi... 

Kadýný keskin býçak, 
Taze kan gibi sýcak. 
Ýstanbul, 
Ýstanbul... 

Yedi tepe üstünde zaman bir gergef isler! 
Yedi renk, yedi sesten þayisiz beliriþler... 
Eyüp oksuz, Kadýköy süslü, Moda kurumlu, 
Adada rüzgar, ucan eteklerden sorumlu. 
Her þafak Hisarlarda oklar çýkar yayýndan 
Hala çýðlýklar gelir Topkapý sarayýndan. 
Ana gibi yar olmaz, Ýstanbul gibi diyar; 
Güleni söyle dursun, aðlayaný bahtiyar... 

Gecesi sümbül kokan 
Türkçe’si bülbül kokan, 
Ýstanbul, 
Ýstanbul...
