CONTRA O GOLPE CIVIL EM CURSO E A FAVOR DA DEMOCRACIA

domingo, 6 de julho de 2014

 Master, serene are
 All the hours
 That we lose,
 If we lose them,
 We place flowers
Like in a jar.
 ---
 In our life,
 There are no sorrows
 Nor are there joys
 So let us learn,
 Incautiously wise,
 Not to live life.
 ----
 But to flow down it
 Tranquilly, serenely
 Let our children
Be our teachers
 And our eyes be
 Full of Nature.
 -----
 By the river bank,
 By the road side,
 Happening to be right,
 Always the same,
 A gentle rest
 Being living life.
 ....
 Time passes
 It tells us nothing
 We grow old
 Let’s learn., almost
 Maliciously,
 To feel ourselves going.
 ---
 It is not worth while
 To make a gesture.
 There is no resistance
To the cruel god
 Who devours always
His own sons.
 ---
Let us pick flowers,
 Let us dip gently
 Our hands
 Into calm rivers
 For learning
 Also to be calm.
 ---
 Sunflowers ever
 Stare at the sun,
Let us go from life
 Tranquilly, with
No remorse
 Of having lived.

As Ricardo Reis
 December 6, 1914
