Augosto dos Anjos

(20 April 1884 - 12 November 1914 / Pau d'Arco)

A Dor


Chama-se a Dor, e quando passa, enluta
E todo mundo que por ela passa
Há de beber a taça da cicuta
E há de beber até o fim da taça!

Há de beber, enxuto o olhar, enxuta
A face, e o travo há de sentir, e a ameaça
Amarga dessa desgraçada fruta
Que é a fruta amargosa da Desgraça!

E quando o mundo todo paralisa
E quando a multidão toda agoniza,
Ela, inda altiva, ela, inda o olhar sereno

De agonizante multidão rodeada,
Derrama em cada boca envenenada
Mais uma gota do fatal veneno!
