Carlos Drummond de Andrade


Quadrilha -- with English translation


Square Dance

João loved Teresa who loved Raimundo
who loved Maria who loved Joaquim
who loved Lili
who loved nobody.
João left to the United States,
Teresa to a convent,
Raimundo died in a crash,
Maria became an old maid,
Joaquim killed himself and Lili married J. Fernandes Pinto
who hadn't been in the story.

----------------------------------- ---------------

João amava Teresa que amava Raimundo
que amava Maria que amava
Joaquim que amava Lili
que não amava ninguém.
João foi para os Estados Unidos,
Teresa para o convento,
Raimundo morreu de desastre,
Maria ficou pra tia,
Joaquim suicidou-se e Lili casou com J. Pinto Fernandes
que não tinha entrado na história

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
