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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
