UMBELINA FROTA Linhares Pimenta Bastos


Hold my hand,
Please, hold it,
I feel lonely, very lonely,
I want a friend hand, confident,
So that I can go ahead.
Hold me!
Hug me!
Sometimes I feel myself falling down,
Twisting with my solitude,
I shout, nobody answers,
Only the nigth, with its silence
And its darkness
Just a star shining,
As wanting to show,
The way to tread.
I walk lonely, as in the past,
Sobbing as always.
I feel cold in my soul,
Just a tear calm me down.
Lonely, very lonely! ...
My heart complains
Please! Listen to my scream!
Hold my hand,
Please, hold it! ...

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
