Nadi, how much of the poem posted above (Näme Sen) do you understand? Any chance you'd want to help translate it?
I know it is my impudence to translate this beautiful poem of Mahdumkulu, since this is my first "touch" to Turkmen language, but please, take this attempt of mine as the first step to the translation of the poem. I just wanted to give a general idea about the poem. I hope others will show up to make this translation perfect.
The red parts are the parts I didn't understand at all. The other parts are the parts which I more or less understood.
