'Lonely Lover On The Sea'

'E como em noites de Itália
Ama um canto o pescador
Bebe a harmonia em teus cantos
O Gondoleiro do amor'
(Castro Alves)

The wind blows, blows, blows...
my lonely boat -
through the stormy waves,
on this lonely sea.
The water flows, flows, flows...
leading me to the place -
where my boat,
will be safe.
Sad is the night
When I sing a romantic song -
waiting to come the light,
bringing the morning.
No birds
No trees
No flowers near to me -
The poem that flows...
is so lonely.
Inside my heart your love grows, grows, grows...
I know when it ends...
But I don't know when it starts.
Feels like: 'Lonely Lover On The Sea.'
Take my company
Feels like near to your heart -
'Cause you are my everything,
My everything without you is nothing.
Lying in my arms
I'd sing for you all the night -
Staring all the stars in the sky,
Tasting the kiss from your sweet lips.
Far from my eyes I can see
The earth where I will depart -
Never hoping from you to be apart,
While all this love to last.

(*) Castro Alves was the one of the most important
poet from Brazilian Literature.He was born in Bahia,
and as a black person and poet, he fought for the
freedom for the black people when they were still
slaveries in the brazilian society.This quotation from
his poem means: 'As in Italy's Nights, love one song
the fisherman, drink the harmony in your love, the love's
poet.'He was known in the brazilian literature as 'The
Poet of the Love.'

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
