O Mavilik Derdi -Edip Cansever

 

Beni uykudan uyandirir uyandirmaz 

Dünyanin bütün huylari yüzünde 

Ben bunlardan birini seviyorum en çok 

Sana bir nar kesip uzatiyor ya doga 

Tutsam tanelerini 

Sevincin gözyaslari derdim buna. 

 

Bir süre bakisiyoruz karsilikli 

Ben uykudan uyanir uyanmaz 

Benimle siir gibidir bu 

Tam karsimda ama yazilmamis 

Durmadan bileniyor aklimda. 

 

Seni unutarak baktigimda bile 

Dünyanin her yerlerinden geçiyorsun 

Yayiliyorsun kalabaliklara 

Yalniz yayilmak mi 

Askin en büyügü, en dayanilmazi demeli buna. 

 

Özlenirsin, alabildigine varsin da 

Daha da var oluyorsun gün günden 

Olgun bir meyva gibi güleceksin zamanla 

Bir kadin da degilsin, bir kisi de degilsin 

Bir kus olsa mavilik derdi buna.

=========================

It would call it ´blue sky´

 

As soon as you wake me up,

All characters of the world are on your face.

I love one of them at the most.

Think of the nature giving you a slice of pomegranate.

If I hold of its seeds,

I would call it tears of joy.

 

We are staring at each other for a while,

As soon as I wake up.

This is like a poem and me.

Just in front of me but yet to be written.

As it is  distilled in my mind constantly.

 

Even I forget what I stare at,

You go through the every corner of the world.

You are spreading around people.

Is it only spreading?

It should be called the greatest, the most amazing love.

 

You get missed, your being is endless but

You are becoming more each day.

You will be smiling like a ripened fruit with the time.

You are not a woman only, nor a person.

if it was a sparrow, it would call it ´blue sky´.


My try (as always)

Clearly a beautiful poem from a man? to his wife? whom he must love very much {#lang_emotions_bigsmile}  I love the emotion of Turkish poetry and would love to hear this read in Turkish in the vein it was written.  I am sure the hairs on the back of my neck would be standing to attention {#lang_emotions_rolleyes}

If you search google for ´edip cansever´ you can find his poems..

He is a quite well known name in Turkish poetry.

 I meant did you find in on the internet, or do you have a book?  I googled but I can´t read Turkish so I don´t know if I like it or not {#lang_emotions_confused}

Well..I am sorry Azymuth but if you can not read Turkish what are you going to do with that book? (may be use it as a door stopper? )

I can not see many translations from Edip Cansever on the net...I have not seen in any books shops either..

His poetry can be considered as "quite difficult for many Turks" as well..

But yes..I have a few books from him..(I love reading some books while I am having a bath with some music..  and that was what I was reading all week while in the bath) 

If you find a book of translation of his poems please let us know..

Otherwise, wait for me until I try to attempt translating another one..

 Thanks for the sarcasm, perhaps I should not ask questions, it seem to be a trend around here to get a holier than thou answer!  I was not asking for translations, just information.  Oh well never mind

 Don´t worry about it.  If you ask a question, there is a strong possibility you will get an answer. If you don´t your chances decrease.

 

I don´t know if Mr. H was being sarcastic or not, but things sometimes are misconstrued.

 

Welcome to Turkish Language Class. There are a lot of great resources here.

Thanks, to late, I have asked to be deleted.  It is a pointless site if you ask me full of people who are either up their own arses or just belittle everyone.  Enjoy I have better things to do with my life.............
