A Turkish Poem


      SADNESS

    I might have got angry
      With those I love
   If love
      Hadn't taught me
  To be sad.

       Orhan Veli Kanik

Translated by Anil Mericelli
MAHZUN DURMAK
  Sevdigim insanlara
  Kizabilirdim,
  Eger sevmek bana
  Mahzun durmayi
  Ogretmeseydi.

                Orhan Veli  (Varlik, 1.11.1937)
