Black Sea style poetry

Black Sea style poetry

Postby avetik » 30 Nov 2007, 06:33

To those who are interested, I propose trying to create (or to translate existing) verses in "karadeniz" style.
As you may know, we call them "mani", but Pontian Greeks call them "stixakia".
I think, these primitive poems are a good bridge between lymeric and haiku, and are very unique.

I don't think that I'm doing it in English for the first time ever, but let me try...

Soup is boiling on the stove,
Bring a spoon and stir it up,
Pretty girls began to dance,
Guys, come over, fall in love!..


:D

Hey, I think I can even sing this one using one of the well known tunes!..

My kemenche I will play,
Simple lyrics I will say,
If you do not like my sound,
Go from here far away!..

Here's a village in my eyes,
Lots of ladies very nice,
Lots of working every day,
All my hair is turning gray.


:P

In our village there's no roads,
Donkeys carry heavy loads,
Wolves and bears everywhere,
Where's the people no one knows.


:cry:

Summer's cold and winter's hot,
What is going on abroad?
Crazy people everywhere,
Vote for Barak, I don't care.

Play, my fiddle-kemenche,
Sing to people everywhere,
If you voice is strong enough
They will here you in Hamshen!..

Yar, you're married, as I see,
Blessings to your family ,
Go and live with them already,
Why you're looking after me?

Ax, Toyota-Toyota!
My Corolla-Corolla,
Put your wheels on any ground,
You still carry me around.

When I wake, I have no choice,
People talk with loud voice,
Cars and trains are making sounds...
When will I hear my xoroz*?

xoroz = rooster

There's a friend accross the sea,
Looks like me and talks like me,
If I go up to the mountain,
From up there him I can see.

Plain is flying in the cloud,
Engine's working very loud,
Mother, watch your daughter well,
With that pilot she will fly.
