Ceviz Ağacı The Walnut Tree

Başım k├Âp├╝k k├Âp├╝k bulut, i├žim dışım deniz,
ben bir ceviz ağacıyım G├╝lhane Parkı'nda,
budak budak, şerham şerham ihtiyar bir ceviz.
Ne sen bunun farkındasın, ne polis farkında.

Ben bir ceviz ağacıyım G├╝lhane Parkı'nda.
Yapraklarım suda balık gibi kıvıl kıvıl.
Yapraklarım ipek mendil gibi tiril tiril,
koparıver, g├Âzlerinin, g├╝l├╝m, yaşını sil.
Yapraklarım ellerimdir, tam y├╝z bin elim var.
Y├╝z bin elle dokunurum sana, İstanbul'a.
Yapraklarım g├Âzlerimdir, şaşarak bakarım.
Y├╝z bin g├Âzle seyrederim seni, İstanbul'u.
Y├╝z bin y├╝rek gibi ├žarpar, ├žarpar yapraklarım.

Ben bir ceviz ağacıyım G├╝lhane Parkı'nda.
Ne sen bunun farkındasın, ne polis farkında.



my head foaming clouds, sea inside me and out
I am a walnut tree in Gulhane Park
an old walnut, knot by knot, shred by shred
Neither you are aware of this, nor the police

I am a walnut tree in Gulhane Park
My leaves are nimble, nimble like fish in water
My leaves are sheer, sheer like a silk handkerchief
pick, wipe, my rose, the tear from your eyes
My leaves are my hands, I have one hundred thousand
I touch you with one hundred thousand hands, I touch Istanbul
My leaves are my eyes, I look in amazement
I watch you with one hundred thousand eyes, I watch Istanbul
Like one hundred thousand hearts, beat, beat my leaves

I am a walnut tree in Gulhane Park
neither you are aware of this, nor the police
