Treasure Island

Carlos Drummond de Andrade


Square Dance -- English translation of Quadrilha


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.

--------
Quadrilha

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

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
