As Pombas...


Vai-se a primeira pomba despertada ...


Vai-se outra mais ... mais outra ... enfim dezenas


De pombas vão-se dos pombais, apenas


Raia sanguínea e fresca a madrugada ...

E à tarde, quando a rígida nortada


Sopra, aos pombais de novo elas, serenas,

Ruflando as asas, sacudindo as penas,

Voltam todas em bando e em revoada...

Também dos corações onde abotoam,

Os sonhos, um por um, céleres voam,

Como voam as pombas dos pombais;

No azul da adolescência as asas soltam,

Fogem... Mas aos pombais as pombas voltam,

E eles aos corações não voltam mais...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
