Possibly, right now.
He's thinking
Of Edith Almera
By a lake near Brussels.

Edith Almera
Is the first fiddle
In a gypsy orchestra,
Very popular on the nightclub circuit.

Curtsying to
Her applauding  admirers,
She smiles.

Nightclubs are beautiful;
A person may fall
In love
With girls playing first fiddle there.

Orhan Veli Translated by Murat Nemet-Nejat, 1989
