Poems

Salep

Notes

Salep is a delicious hot milky drink made from the ground roots of wild orchids that is beloved by Turkish people and drunk throughout the former Ottoman empire.

We really enjoyed translating this charming poem with its delightful sensual details and celebration of one of life's essential pleasures.
