Treasure Island

Artur Azevedo

(7 July 1855 - 22 October 1908 / Maranhão)

Desengano


A pensionista pálida que gosta
(Fundada pretensão!) que a digam bela,
E do colégio, à tarde, na janela,
Para dar-me um sorriso se recosta;

Que me escreve nas férias, de Bemposta,
Aonde vai visitar a parentela,
Pedindo-me que não me esqueça dela
E dando-me uns beijinhos..., pela posta;

Essa ninfa gentil dos olhos pretos,
Essa beleza de anjo... oh, sorte varia;
Vergonha eterna para os meus bisnetos!

Com um pançudo burguês, uma alimária
Que não a sabe amar, nem faz sonetos,
Vai casar-se amanhã na Candelária.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
