That At The Afyon Station

Recall the little girl at the Afyon station
Pulled her shoes off when boarding the train
Think of the Varto earthquake, as aid from the West
A brassiere and a can of milk powder were sent

A man whitewashed walls of his house with powder
His wife kept the brassiere which she does not know what
She thought of using it as a earmuff in the winter
O God, happened these just in your childhood days?

Lots of people sitting on the threshold
I wish I loved you just because of this
This is a translation of the poem Afyon Garindaki by Cemal Süreya
