Por Decoro


Quando me esperas, palpitando amores,
E os grossos lábios úmidos me estendes,
E do teu corpo cálido desprendes
Desconhecido olor de estranhas flores;

Quando, toda suspiros e fervores,
Nesta prisão de músculos te prendes,
E aos meus beijos de sátiro te rendes,
Furtando as rosas as púrpureas cores;

Os olhos teus, inexpressivamente,
Entrefechados, lânguidos, tranquilos,
Olham, meu doce amor, de tal maneira,

Que, se olhassem assim, publicamente,
Deveria, perdoa-me, cobri-los
Uma discreta folha de parreira.

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,
