Azerbaijani (azeri) in the official language of Azerbaijan and Dagestan. 18 million people speak this Oghuz language. This poem about love in Azerbaijani (Azeri) is for the reflection of the Caspian banks. Azerbaijani (azeri), is spoken both in Azerbaijan and Iran, on the west bank of the Caspian Sea. Azerbaijani is a Turkic language language very close to Turkish. It has been written with the arabic script then roman, then cyrillic and now roman alphabet.
The Azeris descend from the ancient persians inhabitants of Eastern Transcaucasia, turquized in the 11th century. Since they lost their, clan and tribal structures. My poem which translates them is dedicated to them. Azerbaijan is located between Iran, Russia, Georgia and Armenia with on its eastern side the Caspian Sea.
