Treasure Island

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!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
