Edith Almera - Poem by Orhan Veli Kanik

Chances are, at this moment,
On a lakeside
Near Brussels
He's thinking of Edith Almera.

Edith Almera
Plays first fiddle
In a gypsy band:
She's acclaimed and adored at nightclubs.

She smiles
As she takes a bow
Before the patrons
Who applaud her.

Nightclubs are just great:
At nightclubs you can
Fall in love
With fiddling girls.
