I AM LISTENING TO İSTANBUL

I am listening to Istanbul,intent,my eyes closed:
At first there is a gentle breeze
And the leaves on the trees
Softly sway;
Out there ,far away ,
The bells of the water -carriers unceasingly ring;
I am listening to Istanbul , intent, my eyes closed .

Floks of birds,high up, with a hue and cry,
While the nets are drawn in the fishing grounds
And a woman's feet begin to dabble in the water.
I am listening to Istanbul, intent, my eyes closed...
