On the subject of smiling to myself

While walking down the street

by Orhan Veli Kanık

While walking down the street by myself

If I realize that I’m smiling,

I suspect people passing by might think I’m a bit crazy,

And I keep smiling.

Sokakta giderken

Sokakta giderken, kendi kendime
Gülümsediğimin farkına vardığım zaman
Beni deli zannedeceklerini düşünüp
Gülümsüyorum.

English translation by E. Geddes
