Minnacık Kadın The Miniature Woman

Mavi G├Âzl├╝ Dev, Minnacık Kadın
Ve Hanımelleri

O mavi g├Âzl├╝ bir devdi.
Minnacık bir kadın sevdi.
Kadının hayali minnacık bir evdi,
bah├žesinde ebruliii hanımeli
a├žan bir ev.

Bir dev gibi seviyordu dev.
Ve elleri ├Âyle b├╝y├╝k işler i├žin hazırlanmıştı ki devin,
yapamazdı yapısını,
├žalamazdı kapısını
bah├žesinde ebruliiii
hanımeli
a├žan evin.

O mavi g├Âzl├╝ bir devdi.
Minnacık bir kadın sevdi.
Mini minnacıktı kadın.
Rahata acıktı kadın
yoruldu devin b├╝y├╝k yolunda.
Ve elveda! deyip mavi g├Âzl├╝ deve,
girdi zengin bir c├╝cenin kolunda
bah├žesinde ebruliiii
hanımeli
a├žan eve.

Şimdi anlıyor ki mavi g├Âzl├╝ dev,
dev gibi sevgilere mezar bile olamaz:
bah├žesinde ebruliiiii
hanımeli
a├žan ev..



The Blue-Eyed Giant, the Miniature Woman
and the Honeysuckle


He was a blue-eyed giant,
He loved a miniature woman.
The woman's dream was of a miniature house
with a garden where honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house.

The giant loved like a giant,
and his hands were used to such big things
that the giant could not
make the building,
could not knock on the door
of the garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
at that house.

He was a blue-eyed giant,
he loved a miniature woman,
a mini miniature woman.
The woman was hungry for comfort
and tired of the giant's long strides.
And bye bye off she went to the embraces of a rich dwarf with a garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house.

Now the blue-eyed giant realizes,
a giant isn't even a graveyard for love:
in the garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house...
