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 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,
