Artur Azevedo

(7 July 1855 - 22 October 1908 / Maranhão)

Miserável


O noivo, como noivo, é repugnante:
Materialão, estúpido, chorudo,
Arrotando, a propósito de tudo,
O ser comendador e negociante.

Tem a viuvinha, a noiva interessante,
Todo o arsenal de um poeta guedelhudo:
Alabastro, marfim, coral, veludo,
Azeviche, safira e tutti quanti.

Da misteriosa alcova a porta geme,
O noivo dorme n'um lençol envolto...
Entra a viuvinha, a noiva... Oh, céu, contem-me!

Ela deita-se... espera... Qual! Revolto,
O leito estala... Ela suspira... freme...,
E o miserável dorme a sono solto!...

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
