Love of Poetry- Nuri Can / Translate: Sultan Doğan

Poem by Nuri Can

 

Love of Poetry

Let life be yours
Wealth, fame, glory and stature
Happiness, beloved,and love
A pinch of dream
A candid smile
A slice of poetry
And a bit of affection will suffice me

A drop of tranquility will suffice me
A bud of hope
A twig of grace
A salute of a friend
And some comfort for this weary heart
A fine dream of poetry
And the seven colours of the sun will suffice me…

Şiir Aşkı

Varsın sizin olsun hayat
para, şan, şöhret, mevki
mutluluk, sevgili, aşk
bana bir tutam düş
bir içten gülüş
bir dilim şiir
bir nebze sevgi yeter..

yeter bir damla huzur
bir gonca umut
bir dal incelik
bir dost selamı
ve yorgun bu kalbe rahatlık

yeter güzel bir rüya şiir
ve güneşin yedi rengi…

Nuri CAN
