Antero Tarquinio de Quental

(1842-1891 / Portugal)

Sepultura Romantica

Ali, onde o mar quebra, num cachão
Rugidor e monotono, e os ventos
Erguem pelo areal os seus lamentos,
Ali se hade enterrar meu coração.

Queimem-no os sóes da adusta solidão,
Na fornalha do estio, em dias lentos;
Depois, no hinverno, os sopros violentos
Lhe revolvam em torno o árido chão...

Até que se desfaça e, já tornado
Em impalpavel pó, seja levado
Nos turbilhões que o vento levantar...

Com suas lutas, seu cançado anceio,
Seu louco amor, dissolva-se no seio
Desse infecundo, desse amargo mar!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
