Arrufos


Não há no mundo quem amantes visse
Que se quisessem como nos queremos...
Um dia, uma questiúncula tivemos
Por um simples capricho, uma tolice.

— 'Acabemos com isto!', ela me disse,
E eu respondi-lhe assim — 'Pois acabemos!'
E fiz o que se faz em tais extremos:
Tomei do meu chapéu com fanfarrice.

E, tendo um gesto de desdém profundo,
Saí cantarolando... (Está bem visto
Que a forma, aí, contrafazia o fundo).

Escreveu-me... Voltei. Nem Deus, nem Cristo,
Nem minha mãe, volvendo agora ao mundo,
Eram capazes de acabar com isto!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
