And everything was possible Poem by Ruy Belo

And everything was possible

Rating: 3.5


When I was still young before I left home
ready to travel around in the world
I already knew about the waves' breaking
from the pages of all the books I'd read

When may rolled around everything was flowers
the morning turtledove flew here flew there
and to hear the dreamer just speak of life
was like it having actually happened

Everything took place in another life
and there was always a way out when needed
When was all this? Not even I can say

I know only that I had a child's power
all things were close to me and everything
was possible I only had to want it

Translation: 1997, Richard Zenith
