Week 2: five poems by Hajji Bayram

These five poems by Hajji Bayram are well known and loved in Sufi circles in Turkey. They are the only ones considered to be authentically by Hajji Bayram, according to modern scholarship. Written in the simple folk style of Yunus Emre, they nevertheless exhibit a profound wisdom. The translation is a new unpublished version from the Turkish, with notes, by Stephen Hirtenstein and Henry Bayman.
