Hikaye Story

Senin dudakların pembe
Ellerin beyaz,
Al tut ellerimi bebek
Tut biraz!

Benim doğduğum k├Âylerde
Ceviz ağa├žları yoktu,
Ben bu y├╝zden serinliğe hasretim
Okşa biraz!

Benim doğduğum k├Âylerde
Buğday tarlaları yoktu,
Dağıt sa├žlarını bebek
Savur biraz!

Benim doğduğum k├Âyleri
Akşamları eşkıyalar basardı
Ben bu y├╝zden yalnızlığı hi├ž sevmem
Konuş biraz!

Benim doğduğum k├Âylerde
İnsanlar g├╝lmesini bilmezdi
Ben bu y├╝zden b├Âyle na├žar kalmışım
G├╝l biraz!

Benim doğduğum k├Âylerde
Kuzey r├╝zgarları eserdi,
Hep bu y├╝zden dudaklarım ├žatlaktır
├ľp biraz!

Sen T├╝rkiye gibi aydınlık ve g├╝zelsin!
Benim doğduğum k├Âyler de g├╝zeldi
Sen de anlat doğduğun yerleri,
Anlat biraz!

Cahit Kulebi (1946)


Your lips are red
Your hands are white
Take my hands, child,
Hold them a while.

In the village where I was born
There were no walnut trees
That's why I yearn for coolness
Fondle me a while.

In the village where I was born
There were no cornfields
So scatter your hair child
Flaunt it a while.

In the village where I was born
The north winds blew
That's why my lips are cracked
Kiss them a while

In the village where I was born
Bandits struck by night
That's why I hate to be alone
Speak with me a while

In the village where I was born
Men did not know how to laugh
That's why I'm still so unhappy
Make me laugh a while

You are light and beauty, like my country
The village where I was born was beautiful too
Now tell me of the place where you were born
Tell me a while.
