Augosto dos Anjos

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

A árvore da serra


As árvores, meu filho, não têm alma!
E esta árvore me serve de empecilho...
É preciso cortá-la, pois, meu filho,
Para que eu tenha uma velhice calma!

— Meu pai, por que sua ira não se acalma?!
Não vê que em tudo existe o mesmo brilho?!
Deus pos almas nos cedros... no junquilho...
Esta árvore, meu pai, possui minh'alma! ...

— Disse — e ajoelhou-se, numa rogativa:
«Não mate a árvore, pai, para que eu viva!»
E quando a árvore, olhando a pátria serra,

Caiu aos golpes do machado bronco,
O moço triste se abraçou com o tronco
E nunca mais se levantou da terra!
