Minnacık Kadın The Miniature Woman

Mavi Gözlü Dev, Minnacık Kadın
Ve Hanımelleri

O mavi gözlü bir devdi.
Minnacık bir kadın sevdi.
Kadının hayali minnacık bir evdi,
bahçesinde ebruliii hanımeli
açan bir ev.

Bir dev gibi seviyordu dev.
Ve elleri öyle büyük işler için hazırlanmıştı ki devin,
yapamazdı yapısını,
çalamazdı kapısını
bahçesinde ebruliiii
hanımeli
açan evin.

O mavi gözlü bir devdi.
Minnacık bir kadın sevdi.
Mini minnacıktı kadın.
Rahata acıktı kadın
yoruldu devin büyük yolunda.
Ve elveda! deyip mavi gözlü deve,
girdi zengin bir cücenin kolunda
bahçesinde ebruliiii
hanımeli
açan eve.

Şimdi anlıyor ki mavi gözlü dev,
dev gibi sevgilere mezar bile olamaz:
bahçesinde ebruliiiii
hanımeli
açan 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...
