Carlos Drummond de Andrade Poems
Souvenir Of The Ancient World
Clara strolled in the garden with the children. The sky was green over the grass, the water was golden under the bridges, other elements were blue and rose and orange,
Apparition Of Love
Sweet ghost, why do you visit me as in other times our bodies visited each other? Your transparency dampens my skin
Don'T Kill Yourself
Carlos, keep calm, love is what you're seeing now; today a kiss, tomorrow no kiss,
What now, José? The party’s over, the lights are off, the crowd’s gone,
Who had the idea of slicing time into pieces, which were given the name of year, was a genius person.
Quadrilha -- With English Translation
João loved Teresa who loved Raimundo who loved Maria who loved Joaquim who loved Lili who loved nobody.

Flesh That Is Shamed
Flesh that fears to grow old calls on the Devil And asks him for consolation. The Devil listens To the flesh's thousand forms of past energy
For Always -- English Translation Of P...
Why does God allow that mothers go away? A mother has no limit, she is time without hour

To Wake, To Live
How to wake up without hurt? Restart without horror? My sleep carried me
I create an elephant of my scarce resources. Some pieces of wood taken of old furniture

Ulterior Desire -- English Translation...
I wish I had the courage To speak of this secret To tell the world About this love
An insect digs
digs without alarm
perforating the earth
without finding escape.
What to do, exhausted,
in a blocked country,
union of the night
root and mineral?
And the labyrinth
(oh reason and mystery)
suddenly untie itself:
in green, lonely,
an orchid is born.
