Treasure Island

Arrufos


Não há no mundo quem amantes visse
Que se quisessem como nos queremos...
Um dia, uma questiúncula tivemos
Por um simples capricho, uma tolice.

— 'Acabemos com isto!', ela me disse,
E eu respondi-lhe assim — 'Pois acabemos!'
E fiz o que se faz em tais extremos:
Tomei do meu chapéu com fanfarrice.

E, tendo um gesto de desdém profundo,
Saí cantarolando... (Está bem visto
Que a forma, aí, contrafazia o fundo).

Escreveu-me... Voltei. Nem Deus, nem Cristo,
Nem minha mãe, volvendo agora ao mundo,
Eram capazes de acabar com isto!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
