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!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
