Ottoman Turkish Poetry

Recommended Posts

...I felt like sharing. Translation from Persian/Turkish...

If my heart were a wild bird, it would nest in

your twisted curl.

Wherever I am, oh jinn, my love is by your side.

I'm happy with my suffering, take your hand from

the medicine that will cure me.

Oh doctor, do not heal me, the poison that

destroys me is your cure!

Don't be shy and pull your skirts from the

hands of those fallen with love-take care!

For the hands which hold hem, if suddenly

emptied, may prey evilly to the sky.

The fragments of my shattered heart lie

pierced on the spearpoints of your lashes.

Go to sleep, drunk on your own beauty, and

mend my heart by the closing of your eyes.

Separation from you is death, beloved, the end

of life itself

I am bewildered by others who live long apart

from you

The wick of your spirit is twisted like the

hyancinth curl of the beloved

Hey Fuzuli, you can't hope for release until

you burn like a candle with love's flame..

:):( Great no?
