Best Poem of Orhan Veli Kanik

Fine Days

These fine days have been my ruin.
On this kind of day I resigned
My job in 'Pious Foundations'
On this kind of day I started to smoke
On this kind of day I fell in love
On this kind of day I forgot
To bring home bread and salt
On this kind of day I had a relapse
Into my versifying disease.
These fine days have been my ruin.

Translated by Bernard Lewis (1982)

Bad Kid

You break school,
Hunt birds,
You go to the seaside and
Talk to bad kids,
You draw bad pictures on the walls.
It's nothing, but
You will tempt me as well,
What a bad kid you are.
