Maria Magdalena Biela


Retrato - Poem by Maria Magdalena Biela

Eu não tinha este rosto de hoje,
assim calmo, assim triste, assim magro,
nem estes olhos tão vazios,
nem o lábio amargo.

Eu não tinha estas mãos sem força,
tão paradas e frias e mortas;
eu não tinha este coração
que nem se mostra.

Eu não dei por esta mudança,
tão simples, tão certa, tão fácil:
- Em que espelho ficou perdida
a minha face?


Cecilia Meireles
..................................... .
Portrait

I didn't have this face of now,
so resigned, so sad, so wasted,
nor these eyes so empty,
nor the bitter lips.

I didn't have these hands without strength,
so still and cold and dead;
I didn't have this heart.
that doesn't even show.

I didn't feel this change,
so simple, so sure, so easy:
In which mirror is lost
my face?
