Dün gece aniden,
Yıldızlar kaydı ellerimden
Eski bir fotoğraf gibiydin
Rüzgâra tutulmuş dağılıyorken.
Ne karanfil, karanfil kokuyordu saçların,
Ne de hanımelileriydi ellerin…
Sarmaşıktın çözülen, yılgın
Yediveren beyaz gülden…
Zamansız yağmurlar silerken

When deleting rains
Last night, suddenly,
Stars record in my hands
You’re like an old photograph
The wind kept breaking
What cloves, clove smelt of hair
Nor was the hand of honeysuckle
Have’nt resolved the ivy The daunted white roses …
My heart was bitter,
When suddenly, the rains vanish
In my eyes …
